Description

The Changing Landscape of the Land Conservation Model: Acquisition, Transfer, and Stewardship


The model that land trusts and similar organizations have traditionally followed to acquire and transfer land to agencies for management and stewardship is changing due to shifts in funding levels and organizational missions. In response to these shifts, land trusts and agencies have developed innovative new models of working together to fill funding gaps to acquire land, address new management concerns, and meet public access demands. People-powered parks, HCP/NCCP-driven habitat conservancies, and diversifying the pool of management entities to which to transfer land are a few examples. But are these new models sustainable and meeting all the needs of the land? What are the factors affecting their viability? And what does the future look like for state and local funding that allows for agencies to accept land again?


Join us at our Harvest Gathering on Thursday, November 16, 2017 for a discussion on the evolving relationship between land trusts and their stewardship partners. You will hear perspectives on:

  • Where the traditional model began, how and why it has changed, and a forecast of where things are going.

  • Innovative ways that land trusts and agencies are working together to uncover untraditional funding sources and partners to acquire, transfer, and steward land.

  • To what extent these models are working and where more collaboration is needed


Stay tuned for other speakers to be added to this list. The current panelists are:

  • Paul Ringgold, Moderator, Chief Program Officer, Save the Redwoods League
  • Corey Brown, Program Officer/Attorney, Resources Legacy Fund
  • Walter Moore, President & CEO, Peninsula Open Space Trust
  • Abigail Fateman, Executive Director, East Contra Costa County Habitat Conservancy
  • Additional Speakers TBD


Please spread the word to anyone whom might be interested in this important topic that's relevant to land practitioners across the region: www.baosc_landconservationmodel.eventbrite.com

The deadline to register is November 14, 2017.

The Gathering will be held at the David Brower Center in downtown Berkeley. Doors open at 9:30am. The program starts at 10am and Q&A will follow the panel discussion. Lunch will be served from 12-1pm. We'll be using #OSCLandModel to talk about the event on social.
