Future of landscape conservation: Investments in biodiversity, climate, and cultural conservation

Registration link.

Description: The Network for Landscape Conservation is pleased to be partnering with the California Landscape Stewardship Network to host a virtual policy forum to highlight needed investments in science and collaborative processes to meet contemporary biodiversity, climate and culture conservation goals. Investments in science and networks for biodiversity, climate, & cultural conservation goals: Collaborative landscape conservation and stewardship is increasingly important as our country faces emerging challenges to address climate change, protect and restore biodiversity, create a more just and inclusive conservation paradigm, conserve working lands, and rebuild our economy. The purpose of this national forum is to convene leadership with diverse perspectives in a strategic conversation on the capacities and policies needed to develop and apply landscape scale science and planning. This conversation is timely. As the nation grapples with emerging opportunities and approaches to conserve and steward our nation’s lands and waters, it is important to understand how science and local knowledge can inform the ways we steward our nation’s lands and waters, and how to strengthen the role of networks as they foster collaborative decision-making at different scales.

Presenters: Wade Crowfoot, Secretary of the California Natural Resources Agency will offer a keynote address and moderate a panel discussion with the following panelists:
Jeff Allenby – Director of Geospatial Technology for the Center for Geospatial Solutions, ‎Lincoln Institute of Land Policy
Bray Beltrán – Science Director, Heart of the Rockies Initiative
Leroy Little Bear – Blackfoot researcher and Professor Emeritus, University of Lethbridge, Kainai First Nation
