Packard Western Conservation Strategies for the Colorado Plateau

Related: Environment and Natural Resources

In 2007, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation set out to develop a five-year grant-making strategy to guide their work in the Colorado Plateau, with an overall mission of advancing land and water conservation and sustainable community development in the region. The Foundation enlisted Meridian Institute to assist in developing the strategy.


Meridian coordinated and facilitated a series of stakeholder meetings and stakeholder interviews through which we solicited insights and suggestions regarding possible strategies and projects that would meet multiple Foundation goals and objectives. The results of these meetings and discussions, as well as Meridian’s insights and recommendations, were summarized in a final report to the Foundation.
