Pacific Northwest Global Stewardship

Promoting projects that make a positive difference

Lindblad Expeditions supports stewardship efforts in the places we explore, and one way we do that is through the Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic (LEX-NG) Fund. Traveler contributions to the LEX-NG Fund in the Pacific Northwest currently support the National Geographic Society’s Early Career Grant program, which promotes future leaders with novel and exploratory projects that span the fields of conservation, education, research, storytelling, and technology. In awarding each $5,000-$10,000 grant, preference is given to projects that directly impact the Pacific Northwest or that align with our mission to preserve the ocean, coastlines, and coastal communities in the regions where the LEX-NG fleet travels.

Land Conservation

With support from the LEX-NG Fund, the Columbia Land Trust identifies and acquires conservation properties along the Columbia River watershed, preserving their natural beauty and habitats for generations to come.
