Intermountain West Joint Venture
One of the largest of the joint ventures, the INTERMOUNTAIN WEST JOINT VENTURE, stretches from Canada to Mexico with focus areas in eleven western states.
Our mission is to facilitate the long-term conservation of key avian habitat including planning, funding, and developing habitat projects that benefit all biological components of Intermountain ecosystems.
We achieve our mission by developing partnerships with private and public landowners who support habitat conservation. The Joint Venture promotes the restoration and maintenance of all bird populations; fosters the protection, restoration, and enhancement of wetlands, riparian habitats, and the widely diverse uplands characteristic of the region.
Since 1999, we have evolved and expanded our vision to embrace all bird habitat conservation. This includes habitat for waterfowl, shore birds, wading birds, and song birds as well as other game and non-game avian species.
