Celebrating 25 Years

Did you know The Conservation Alliance was founded by four companies in 1989 at the San Francisco airport? Learn more about the history and accomplishments of The Conservation Alliance from our friends in the Outdoor Industry and grantees working to protect our wild places.

In the last 25 years, 42 milion acres and 2,825 river miles became permanently protected, five marine reserves were designated, nine clibming areas were acquired and 26 dams were halted or removed thanks to the support of our members and for the hard work of our grantees. We’re very grateful for all of the people who made this posible.  Thank you, and we look forward to the next 25 years!
