Preserving a Legacy



In order to conserve Wyoming’s vibrant agricultural landscape, the Cultural Landscape Fund has been establishedimg_0284 in memory of Alvin Wiederspahn to help private landowners maintain the range through ranching culture. Funds will be directed by the Wyoming Stock Growers Land Trust to assist with voluntary conservation of private ranch lands so that they may sustain people and cultural resources for generations to come. Donations to the Cultural Landscape Fund may be utilized for traditional conservation purposes, such as the acquisition of conservation easements or the costs associated with completing that work, estate or succession planning assistance to ranch families, or to further awareness and the conservation of ranch culture. Alvin Wiederspahn served on the Board of Directors of the Stock Growers Land Trust from 2009 up to his death in 2014 and as Chairman from 2012 through 2014. He was passionate about our work and the opportunity we have to conserve not just land, but Wyoming’s “cultural landscape.”
