Integrating Climate Change into Conservation Strategies

November 16th, 2019: A one-day training for land trusts in Oregon, Washington and Idaho

 

Does your land trust have what it takes to adapt to and combat climate change in its land conservation work?

Get the training, strategies and tools you need on November 16 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Hilton in Vancouver, Washington. This day-long training for only $65 is hosted by the Land Trust Alliance, Washington Association of Land Trusts and Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts. All land trust staff and board members are invited to attend. Register today! 

Protecting and stewarding land is a core mission of the land trust community. By effectively planning for climate impacts, land trusts will strengthen the resilience of our land for plants, animals and people.

This training will have two concurrent tracks:

  • a facilitated discussion on strategic issues related to climate change; and
  • a technical training on incorporating climate science into strategic conservation planning.

Participants will learn how to integrate climate science into the planning and implementation of their conservation projects. In addition, attendees will learn how the land trust community can be a leader for natural climate solutions.
