Open Space Conference – May 19, 2016 – Craneway Pavilion, Richmond, CA
Ticket sales close on Thursday, May 12 at 5pm. Please contact Mary Gowins at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
We are all busy. At times we can feel overwhelmed by the challenges facing our planet and humanity itself. The work we do – to preserve and steward land, and to connect people to that land – is hard work. And it’s vital that we do this work and do it well. It’s not an understatement to say that our planet and humanity depend on it.
The 2016 Open Space Conference will build our individual capacity to address regional, if not global, problems. We will gather as a community – a growing and increasingly diverse community – to create the future we want to create, and leave with the next steps necessary to achieve that goal. We will celebrate major milestones – 100 years of the National Park Service and 40 years of the California Coastal Conservancy – that impact all of our work either directly or indirectly.
At the 2016 Open Space Conference you will connect with peers in your county and around the Bay Area doing similar work as you. Meet young people who want to contribute their time and talents to conservation. Be inspired to tackle challenges in new ways. Learn how your daily work is part of a larger vision. And you will leave with clear next steps, a fresh perspective, and the connections you need to excel at your work. Join us.
