Hear from Landowners Committed to Conservation Partnerships for both People and Nature
Relationships and partnerships with landowners are often sought by public agencies and non-government organizations desiring to work voluntarily on sensitive species or other landscape issues where there is an existing or pending regulatory concern such as a state or federal endangered species listing. Often these initial conversations can be difficult or awkward for both landowners and partners. All of the landowners on this upcoming panel have worked voluntarily with partners on species that either had regulatory status or a regulatory action was proposed or pending.
Hear from landowners from very different areas of the country (West, East and Southeast) who will share their thoughts and experiences about conversations and relationships when working voluntarily with partners in these types of situations. The panel will be followed by an opportunity to ask questions.
Who is Partners for Conservation (PFC)? Here is their own description: "Established in 2008, Partners for Conservation embodies a grassroots movement of private landowners working with agencies, non-profit organizations, and policymakers to collaborate on conservation projects to sustain our working landscapes for present and future generations. PFC represents the voices of 21st century conservation and the collective effort to support working landscapes through voluntary, incentive-based public and private programs."
