Darden Restaurants, Inc. Foundation

Through the Rocky Mountain Rangelands Program, the Darden Restaurants, Inc. Foundation and NFWF will work with conservation partners and private landowners to implement voluntary management practices designed to improve livestock productivity, restore wildlife habitat, improve water management and generate carbon benefits in the Intermountain West.


The Darden Restaurants, Inc. Foundation began partnering with NFWF on the Rocky Mountain Rangelands Program in 2022 as part of their commitment to protect our planet for future generations. The Rocky Mountain Rangelands Program supports conservation efforts in the human-wildlands interface that maintain robust wildlife populations in a working landscape and promote climate resiliency. The program relies on local community-led landscape scale partnerships, which are flourishing across the region and offer promising new approaches that support the conservation and improvements of rangelands, with dual emphasis on livestock production and wildlife habitat.
