||Community Conservation: Making Your Work Resilient and Your Land Trust Relevant
||This workshop provides a national overview of community conservation along with a local case study from the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy. Community conservation uses the mission, skills and resources of land trusts to connect more people to the land and enrich their quality of life. It involves listening to the concerns of people from all walks of life, building new and lasting partnerships and making the decision-making process more inclusive. The result is creative conservation work that wholly reflects community wants and needs, which can withstand the test of time. Stories from across the country and close to home will provide important insights into how a community conservation approach can broaden your constituency, achieve your land and water quality protection goals, grow your relevance and enhance community well-being.
