Lassoing the Transformative Power of Strategic Conservation Planning

Room: Usdan 136
Intermediate Level

This workshop dives into strategic conservation planning for land trusts, emphasizing the importance of focusing on strategic priorities to efficiently raise funds and protect land. It will outline how a strategic framework directs efforts towards high-priority properties, fosters partnerships, and aligns with broader community and non-conservation goals, enhancing effectiveness and resource allocation. The session covers various planning models and methods, key steps at the organizational level, and encourages participants to apply these concepts to benefit their organizations. Designed for those involved in land protection, including board members, staff, and volunteers, the workshop includes time for reflection, discussions, and Q&A, highlighting the long-term benefits of strategic planning despite the initial investment of time and resources.
