Teton Conservation District (TCD) provides grant funding for natural resource conservation projects through the annual Partners in Conservation (PIC) grant program. TCD prioritizes grant applications that support the District's 2020-2025 Strategic & Long-Range Plans and demonstrate a benefit to the environment and/or community in one or more of the following grant categories:

  • Land:  TCD cooperates with public land managers and private landowners to support agriculture, including vegetation monitoring on public land grazing allotments, and production of agricultural goods. Other areas of interest include soil sampling and analysis, irrigation infrastructure improvements, community and school garden projects, and more.
  • Water: TCD prioritizes preserving water resources by dedicating staff time and funding to monitor and address water quality issues, waterbody health, aquatic habitat, flooding, and erosion. Current areas of focus include stormwater and wastewater management, nutrient pollution, and drinking water.
  • Vegetation: TCD prioritizes maintaining and restoring native vegetation through education, on-the-ground actions, and partnerships. TCD supports landowners and partners in decreasing the presence of invasive species on the landscape, promoting native plant education and use, and reducing the risk of wildfire on private land. 
  • Wildlife: Through a combination of staff expertise and grants, TCD works to support healthy populations of native species, protect habitat, limit human-wildlife conflict, foster wildlife permeability, and quantify and mitigate the impacts of development on wildlife and natural resources.
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS): TCD staff specialize in geospatial data creation, analysis and cartography, and provide technical expertise and recommendations to decision-makers to assist with natural resource conservation.
  • Sustainability: TCD supports and leads initiatives to conserve natural resources, including recycling, composting, hazardous waste disposal, and alternative energy efforts. 
  • Education: TCD supports conservation education efforts, such as school projects and lessons, symposiums and events, publications, and more.
