The upcoming Land Trust webinar (details below) on "ambassador lands" is right in our wheelhouse. Providing public access to Symington, Brown, Colhoun, LHM and eventually Silvermine gives us the awareness, activities, membership and funding engines to support our stewardship activities across 380 acres.I plan to listen in on this webinar. I think the LTA is right in focusing on "community conservation" for local land trusts like ours. The NCLT should offer neighborhoods common grounds, not battlegrounds.Best, ChrisFrom: Rob Aldrich - Land Trust Alliance <firstname.lastname@example.org>

I hope you can join us September 14, from 2–3:30 p.m. Eastern for a free webinar on "Increasing Impact with Community Conservation."
Are you thinking about perpetuity and the need for long-term support? Looking for ways to increase community passion for land and for your land trust? How about connecting more of your fellow community members to land or water that is close by and welcoming?
If you've already heard about "ambassador lands" — lands held and managed by land trusts more for engaging people than for conserving their environmental value — then this is the webinar for you.
Dive into the details with this community conservation webinar led by Judy Anderson, where you'll learn about ambassador lands and how to:
- Convince skeptics (among staff, board, donors, etc.) of the merit of ambassador lands
- Think beyond hikers and other "usual suspects" as target audiences
- Involve non-traditional constituencies in planning, design and programs
- Be OK with working on a property that may be ecologically insignificant but perfect for people
If you haven't previously attended an ambassador lands webinar, we recommend you watch this recording.
The cost of this webinar is complimentary thanks to funding from the Land Trust Alliance's community conservation program, so don't miss out!
