11/5/21 – Writing the Land is a collaborative project between land trusts and artists to help raise awareness for the preservation of land, ecosystems, and biodiversity. The program helps poets “adopt” a conserved property, partnering them with a land trust for the calendar year.
Poets visit the properties and create poems inspired by the land. At the end of the year, the poems are published, with a chapter featuring each participating land trust.

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.
