Event Details

Welcoming Interacting Participating

Why do we need to engage people in the protection and stewardship of parks, trails, working lands and other protected lands? The reasons are numerous and well-known. 

How do we do that? How do we create a culture in that land conservation that is welcoming, interactive and participatory? How do we encourage people of all kinds to engage in meaningful ways to our efforts to protect and steward land? These are more challenging questions than the question of ‘why,’ but increasingly just as important. How we involve people in land conservation today will set the tone for land conservation tomorrow. But this isn’t a one-way street where we need to convince others of the value of protected lands. This is an exchange of information and resources that flows in both ways at the individual, organizational and regional levels.


Open Space Conference


Join us for an interactive conversation about interactivity at the 15th annual Open Space Conference on May 8, 2014 in the Presidio. We will discuss what we can do individually and collectively to interact in meaningful ways with those we work with and those we serve. We will look at habits and traditional approaches with a close eye to what we can do differently to get new results.

More information about the conference - including speakers, agenda and more - can be found here.
