New Approaches to Strategic Conservation
Instructors: Judy Anderson, MaryKay O'Donnell
Are you finding that the land protection criteria you developed years ago is not working well for today’s more complex conservation goals? Are you looking for a nuts-and-bolts approach to identify and prioritize land protection projects that address community conservation, water quality, or climate change? Join conservation experts Judy Anderson and MaryKay O’Donnell as they discuss how to design land protection criteria to address the growing needs of land trusts and their communities. You’ll learn what questions to ask when updating your land protection criteria as well as the pros and cons of having one or more land protection criteria to address different types of conservation projects. Real world examples will illustrate a variety of evaluation systems. Specifically, the presenters will concentrate on how land conservation criteria for natural land or farm and ranchland protection can, and likely should, vary from criteria for community conservation projects. Other cutting-edge factors, such as climate resilience data and water quality protection, will also be addressed. There will be a focus on how to factor in near-term impact with long-term success.
