The Orton Foundation, an affiliate of the Moore Charitable Foundation, founded by Louis Bacon, and NFWF began working together to improve landowner acceptance of fire as a major tool to advance longleaf pine restoration through the Longleaf Stewardship Fund in 2016. The Longleaf Stewardship Fund helps to expand, enhance and accelerate longleaf pine ecosystem restoration across longleaf pine’s historical range from Virginia to Texas along the Southeastern Coastal Plain.

This conservation partnership supports NFWF’s efforts to help recover the multitude of at-risk species that call longleaf forests home such as the red-cockaded woodpecker, Bachman’s sparrow and the gopher tortoise.
