After two years of hosting Land Trust Alliance Advocacy Days virtually, 73 land trust leaders came to Washington, D.C., in 2022 to participate in the eleventh annual Land Trust Alliance Advocacy Days, held May 10-12.
The event featured high-level speakers and meetings with congressional offices to discuss key issues and share strategies to advance conservation goals.
It was wonderful to walk around Capitol Hill again and see familiar faces advocating for the passage of the Charitable Conservation Easement Program Integrity Act and talking about the 2023 Farm Bill.
- Lori Faeth, Alliance’s senior director of government relations.
As part of the event, the Alliance celebrated 40 years of conservation success during a reception held on May 10. The Alliance honored several Hill champions who have worked tirelessly to pass the Charitable Conservation Easement Program Integrity Act. Recipients of the inaugural “Land Trust Alliance Conservation Leadership Award” included Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT), Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR).
