Connecting with People

What do you want to see happen? Whatever your vision, to achieve it, you’re going to need people on your side. People who love the land. Who act. Who give. Who vote. And to engage with people, you need to communicate.

There is increasing pressure to convert land, and land trusts need to swell the ranks of allies and supporters to meet these growing threats.
