Land conservation of yesterday is gone. Today we need to change the way we think and change the way we operate in order to adapt to changing populations, climates, and funding realities. We need to try new things, meet new people, form new partnerships, steward the land in new ways, and identify new sources of funding. We won’t always get it right, but we have to try.
The 2015 Open Space Conference will focus on experiments, attempts, and lessons learned across the broad field of land conservation. Join 500 Bay Area leaders in conservation, parks and recreation, and resource management – as well as leaders in health, business, and policy – to learn how we can try, learn and repeat individually and collectively.
