THANKS TO ALL OF OUR SPONSORS FOR MAKING THE 2019 REGENERATE CONFERENCE POSSIBLE!
The Thornburg Foundation
The Thornburg Foundation identifies problems that have at least one identifiable root cause as well as a viable solution that promises enduring change. We expect our strategy to produce measurable results within 3-5 years. They have programs in Early Childhood Education, Food and Agriculture, and Good Government Reforms.
Economically, ecologically, and socially, our relationship to land and nature is a profound human touchstone. The #NoRegrets Initiative is a relationship-centered approach to land and asset management.
Our intention is to preserve and enhance both the natural and man-made features of the ranch and make them accessible to visitors, while producing delicious pastured meats. Our pastures and row crop ground are all certified organic, and we manage the ranch using the principles of Holistic ManagementTM.
Regenerative Agriculture Foundation
The vision of the Regenerative Agriculture Foundation is a world in which the boundaries between the human and natural world are indistinguishable and the totality of human needs are produced in a way that regenerates the ecosystems in which we inhabit.
To accomplish this we support farmers and ranchers, the managers of the vast majority of the nation’s land surface, through research, education and advocacy.
Grasslans Charitable Foundation
To conserve wildlife through the study and management of the habitat and ecosystems on which they depend, Grasslans Charitable Foundation operates and maintains a biological field station in the “core area” of New Mexico that is habitat for the lesser prairie-chicken, a candidate species for listing under the endangered species act. Federal and State wildlife agency personnel as well as University and other researchers and volunteers use this field station to facilitate their work in the area on prairie-chickens and other species.

Lydia B. Stokes Foundation
The Lydia B. Stokes Foundation is committed to the Quaker philosophy of peace and justice. The Foundation supports building resilient, healthy communities by focusing on social and economic justice, regenerative organic agriculture, viable, healthy ecosystems, quality of life issues, development of local food systems, local energy security and peace initiatives.
Lone Mountain Ranch
For over 100 years, Lone Mountain Ranch has been a symbol of the American West. They had a seat at the table for the early days of Yellowstone Park, the formation of the town of Big Sky, the evolution of ranching and logging in the Northern Rockies and the preservation of that spectacular wilderness. Ever since they homesteaded in 1915, the story has had one consistent thread: warm and welcoming hospitality to all. Take a walk back through time to get a sense of the Real Montana you’ll find when you get there.
