Badger Buys are a special type of contribution you can make to Western Lands Preservation. They function like a contribution because buying a Badger Buy doesn't give you anything physical. But they are also different because you get to decide what your money goes to fund, depending on which Badger Buy you purchase. With Badger Buys, we hope to leave more in the hands of our customers. You carry the power to decide what WLP spends your money on; we accomplish what you think is best. Purchasing a Badger Buy lets you know that your money is being used in the best way you see fit.
A Note from Steven on Badger Buys
Dear Prospective Badger Buyers and Not-Buyers,
Since Western Lands Preservation is just starting out, we won't be able to accomplish your Badger Buy right when you buy it. Right now, we have no lands that we think would benefit from Badger Buy improvements. Each of our preserves has different needs and characteristics and may or may not benefit from certain Badger Buys. Our First Preserve page has our specific reasoning for this.
So instead of being used for a Badger Buy right now, your money goes into a reserve fund while we record the purchase of the Bader Buy. And once we find the best use you Badger Buy can go to, only then will we use your money that we've saved for it. In this way, we can remain true to the spirit of the Badger Buy, and your money goes where you intended it too.
If you'd like to see your contribution affect WLP's growth right now, consider a Land Coffer Contribution, at least until we grow our breadth of preserves.
