Event Details

There’s a thrill to acquiring land to be conserved in perpetuity. Working with a land owner to buy a property for conservation – whether for public use, mitigation or some kind of easement – involves deal making, time-pressured fundraising, and in some cases, press and publicity. There are acres, dollars, species and impacts to count, all of which make the acquisition measurable and rewarding.

Then what? The land needs to managed and stewarded… and it's not as boring as that may sound. There are streams to rehabilitate, school groups to involve, histories to understand, and relationships to build. From large properties to day-lit urban creeks, rural landscapes to city parks, we need to collectively take care of the 1.3 million acres that we have protected in our 10 counties. Active and adaptive stewardship is critical and increasingly will be the focus of land conservation efforts in the Bay Area.

Join us for a Stewardship-Palooza on March 20, 2014 to see the thrilling side of managing the land. We will learn from and interact with a host of innovative and exciting projects including projects from:

  • East Bay Regional Park DistrictIdentifying key open spaces and understanding ecological impacts of wind turbines by tracking golden eagles and prairie falcons
  • Fish Friendly FarmingBalancing agricultural productivity and ecological integrity of the landscape with tools for private land owners

Facilitated by Lech Naumovich, Executive Director of Golden Hour Restoration Institute, this Gathering will be more exploratorium than lecture with hands on exhibits and facilitated conversations. Who knows, maybe there will even be endangered species!

The Stewardship-Palooza will be held on March 20, 2014 from 10am-1pm at the Brower Center in downtown Berkeley. The program will run from 10am-12pm. A delicious lunch will be served at 12pm with plenty of time for talking with colleagues. 

Tickets to our Gatherings are $25. Open Space Council members and supporters can register at no cost. If the $25 is prohibitive, please contact Matt Jones at matt@openspacecouncil.org. Refunds are not available. Tickets won't be sold at the door.

We're having fun with this over at #oscpalooza
