The Grassland Fund is a 501c3 non-profit organization Tax ID #77-0312791 devoted to the protection of the Grassland water supply and legal defense against encroachment of harmful land use practices to the habitat. The fund also fully funds the Grassland Environmental Education Center (GEECe) committed to providing tomorrow’s leaders with the knowledge and skills to help understand and sustain our agricultural and wildlife resources.
The Grasslands Ecological Area is a vital habitat for millions of shorebirds, waterfowl and other species. Equivalent the size of New York City, about 300 square miles, it’s the largest contiguous wetland in the western United States.
The region is home to migrating birds who visit each year, as well as wildlife who call the Grassland region home. Over the last several years, severe droughts have affected the region, impacting water allocation to the region. This over time will have a severe impact on wildlife, to the point of impacting migration, and putting some endagered species at risk of survival.
