Land & Rivers Fund protects the land and rivers in our community that we all love. The primary beneficiaries, Eagle River Watershed Council (ERWC) and the Eagle Valley Land Trust (EVLT), are the only nonprofits in our community whose primary focus is to protect our local natural resources. Land & Rivers Fund is no cost to retailers and an affordable way for people to protect the land and rivers of our community. Participating businesses get to showcase their support of land and river protection by simply adding a surcharge (typically 1%) to qualifying purchases. A voluntary donation, customers may ask for the surcharge to be removed. Not just for EVLT and ERWC, Land & Rivers also funds a community grant program available to other organizations and communities as they work to improve natural resources in our area. As more donations are received, more funding becomes available to our community.
