The Future of Landscape Conservation: Cultivating Landowner Engagement

December 17, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm MST

Virtual Forum on Landscape Conservation (1)

A Virtual Policy Forum

Successful landscape conservation depends upon the ability to work across multiple organizations and land ownerships to manage for shared conservation values. Private landowners are a key class of ownerships. Working farms, ranches, and forests are often the last best places for intact, fertile, habitable open land. They can provide interconnected permeable landscapes where nature and local communities thrive. They are the cornerstones of both human communities and the ecosystems we all depend on – and in some regions, they are disappearing. Too often, landowner contributions to conservation at landscape scales are overlooked, while some collaboratives struggle with how to better engage private landowners. Lastly, with the ever-changing economic, sociopolitical, and environmental pressures, innovations in public policy are needed to bridge gaps and embrace private landowner participation.

A keynote address from Lesli Allison, Executive Director of the Western Landowners Alliance will be followed by a moderated panel discussion featuring:
  • Sara Parker Pauley – Director of the Missouri Department of Conservation, and President of the Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies;
  • Jimmy Bullock – Senior Vice President of Forest Sustainability, Resource Management Service LLC;
  • Adam Kiel – Iowa Soybean Association and Senior Vice President, AgOutcomes, Inc.;
  • Jim Lyons – Yale School of the Environment, past Undersecretary for Natural Resources and Environment.
The panel will be moderated by Lynn Scarlett, the Chief External Affairs Officer at The Nature Conservancy.
