The Central Grasslands Roadmap is a collaborative effort to increase conservation of North America's Central Grasslands, which span more than 600 million acres across Canada, the United States and Mexico.
If you think about it, our North American model of wildlife conservation is by definition a diverse-perspective partnership where wildlife are recognized as a public trust resource, owned by both nobody and everybody and managed by public agencies for the public good. In the United States, wildlife conservation has been a partnership since our founding! But how do we know if we have trust or how do we begin to build trust?
It is hard to believe it has almost been a year since the Administration stated its vision of a new path for conservation: An idea that became a commitment to support the function of landscapes, collaboratively, for human and natural values, developed and led locally as described in the America the Beautiful preliminary report.
As with everything, it has been difficult for Partnerscapes, and all organizations that count on public support, to meet and communicate effectively with potential supporters over the last two years. With that in mind, please consider supporting Partnerscapes and/or your local collaborative effort as we all look forward to a much improved 2022!
For the second year in a row, we were not able to gather in person in October due to the pandemic, but we were able to organize some stories of collaborative conservation from across the country, virtually, as well as hear from a couple of our national conservation leaders.
