Partnering with State and Local Agencies on Conservation Projects
Instructors: Caitrin Maloney, Michael Pope
State and local agencies can be strong partners for land trusts wanting to do significant conservation in their communities. However, because they are fundamentally different from land trusts with different missions, constraints and stakeholders, partnering with these agencies can pose challenges for land trusts. Designed for organizations considering or new to partnering with state and local agencies, this webinar will focus on identifying the types of partnership opportunities available to land trusts and explore both the benefits and potential challenges. With an emphasis on real-world examples and in-depth case studies, this webinar will highlight lessons learned from land trusts who have partnered successfully in Oregon and Vermont. Participants will learn practical strategies for creating successful partnerships and what to look out for when entering in a partnership in their home state.
