Wildlands Philanthropy: The Great American Tradition was published in October 2008, with a bi-coastal series of public and private events, including a symposium, the Wildlands Philanthropy Forum, co-hosted by the National Park Foundation and the Conservation Land Trust. Book launch parties were held at Fort Baker in Sausalito, California, and the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

Author Tom Butler and conservationist Kristine Tompkins, whose work is profiled in the book, spoke at the Land Trust Alliance Rally in Pittsburgh, the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, the Patagonia store in New York City, and gave a Congressional Staff Briefing on international wildlands philanthropy in Washington, DC, sponsored by the International Conservation Caucus Foundation.

Tom Butler has given presentations on wildlands philanthropy on behalf of the Northeast Wilderness Trust (Boston), the Highlands Nature Sanctuary (Bainbridge, Ohio), Bernheim Forest (Louisville), Kentucky Natural Lands Trust (Louisville), The Nature Conservancy (New York City), Earthjustice (Seattle), Coastal Conservation League (Charleston), Conservation Trust for North Carolina (Raleigh), WILD Foundation (Boulder, Colorado), Southern Plains Land Trust (Denver), Garden Club of America (The Plains, Virginia), and other conservation groups.
