Inspire all to conserve and enjoy the natural and cultural
resources of the White Tank Mountains
The White Tank Mountains stand in the path of one of the fastest growing metro areas in the nation. How do we make sure the natural beauty lives on? The White Tank Mountains Conservancy and our many partners are working together to create an innovative approach to balance population growth and development with nature.
The White Tank Mountains Conservancy wishes to acknowledge the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust financial support, which has made it possible for collaborative work on the wildlife corridor initiative. Many stakeholders, landowners, and city partners have been brought together to share our common ground on a regional approach for the future of development and conservation in the West Valley.
The Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust was established upon the death of Nina Mason Pulliam in 1997 to support the causes she loved in her home states of Arizona and Indiana. The Trust seeks to help people in need, protect animals and nature, and enrich community life in metropolitan Indianapolis and Phoenix. Since its inception, the Trust has distributed nearly $341 million to 1,004 organizations. For more information visit www.ninapulliamtrust.org.
