National Workshop on Large Landscape Conservation, October 23-24Tuesday, July 22, 2014
You are invited to bring your ideas, experience, enthusiasm, and solutions to the National Workshop on Large Landscape Conservation (NWLLC), October 23 and 24, in Washington, D.C.
The NWLLC will showcase conservation innovation and landscape scale solutions across the public, private, and nonprofit sectors – from our urban centers to our wildest places.
At the NWLLC, you will have the opportunity to hear how the large landscape approach is being adopted across North America to produce measurable benefits for rural and urban communities, enhance water quality and habitat, protect working forests and farmland, and make more efficient use of limited financial and human resources.
You’ll also have the chance to visit Mount Vernon, a green oasis in the middle of metropolitan Washington, D.C. and one of our most historic examples of a large landscape protected for the public’s use and enjoyment.
Senior officials from the US Departments of the Interior, Agriculture, and Defense, as well as leaders in state government, the private sector, non-profits and academia, will be among those participating. They, and you, will be sharing practical, results-oriented tactics and strategies that provide solutions to the landscape scale challenges we face, utilizing the latest information, science, financing mechanisms, and organizational tools.
We will be providing regular updates on workshop sessions, speakers, and participants over the next several weeks. In the meantime, visit www.nwllc2014.org to learn more about the NWLLC and to register to attend.
