The pandemic and pandemic response has made for a tough seven months for natural resource-focused organizations and agencies. It has been very tough on an organization like Partnerscapes that does its best work face-to-face and across the kitchen table. Like individuals and organizations across all sectors, we are doing our best to rise to the challenge and look for new ways to do the work we do. So far Partnerscapes (Partners for Conservation) has hosted three webinars on a series of topics critical to public-private conservation partnerships and collaborative conservation.
Our latest effort was a panel on October 7th examining the importance of landowner leadership in the practice of collaborative conservation. Partnerscapes has two more Zoom events scheduled for October. On October 23rd at noon Mountain Time we will be hosting an event providing initial results from a survey of collaborative conservation efforts in the West that we conducted this summer, which will include a panel of three survey respondents to discuss their work. The following week on October 29th also at noon Mountain Time we will host a Zoom event providing a brief preview of Private Lands Partners Day 2021 (Oregon) and Private Lands Partners Day 2022 (Arkansas) which will feature a few members of the planning teams for both states.
Like all of our Zoom events, registration is required but there is no cost associated with the registration. Registered attendees will also receive a link to a recording of the event to watch again or share. If you would like to register for either of these events send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Soon we will have all the webinars uploaded to our Youtube channel.
