Getting Started with Urban Conservation

84 minutes
Recorded 4/15/2021
Instructors: Kimberly Gleffe, Barbara Hopkins

So, you are interested working in urban areas but your land trust has exclusively conserved lands in rural areas. How do you determine if it’s right for your land trust, and what steps do you need to take to get started? Join urban conservation experts Kimberly Gleffe, River Revitalization Foundation (WI) and Barbara Hopkins, NeighborSpace (MD) as they lay out effective strategies for conserving land and building partnerships (critical to success!) in cities. Drawing upon their 20+ years of experience working in urban settings, speakers will present the real story of what worked and what didn’t work so well in urban areas.

Here is a look at what will be covered:

  • Using "people power" to increase community support for land conservation 
  • Strategies for choosing which land to conserve (and restore)
  • Tools and funding mechanisms for acquisitions
  • Other strategies for getting involved, such as improving acquired (protected?) land with parks, gardens or trails
  • Strategies for ongoing maintenance/stewardship of improved land
