Bard Center for Environmental Policy presents
This two week course, taught by land trust expert Judy Anderson, can be taken in individual sessions or as a two week sequence. Week one, open to anyone, focuses on understanding the key strategies of land trusts. Students learn key elements of running a successful land protection program and how to build greater community support for conservation and your land trust. Topics include different land trusts’ insights on conservation easement programs, owning and managing land in fee, enhancing outreach and communications, and developing a monitoring program for conservation easements. Week two is an advanced session that requires either participation in week one or prior knowledge of land trusts. Week two focuses on what land trusts are doing, or might do, in the face of a rapidly changing climate. Examples will include adaptation and mitigation strategies, impacts on birds, habitat, forests and agriculture, and the role of land trusts in slowing down climate change and tips to adapt conservation easements to climate change.Guest Speakers for Week One
