About This Webinar
We all know that costs associated with long-term stewardship are inherently difficult to predict and often underestimated. In 2016, The Nature Conservancy (accredited) convened national experts to develop a calculator tool to estimate stewardship costs and the amount that should be set aside to provide a secure source of future funding. At the same time, the Land Trust Alliance developed a legal defense reserves calculator to help land trusts determine the costs to defend their conserved lands. After almost seven years, we have learned a lot and are ready to share lessons learned. We will cover the way that the accredited Central Indiana Land Trust uses these tools to address its particular needs as a smaller staffed land trust.
Join stewardship experts Angela Sturdevant, TNC, Jamison Hutchins, Central Indiana Land Trust and Leslie Ratley-Beach, Land Trust Alliance, as they lay out what land trusts need to know when planning for the long-term cost of managing and defendingtheir properties.
Here's a look at what we will cover:
How to identify and plan for costs of stewardship of fee lands.
Typical costs for legal defense and how the role of Terrafirma in estimating costs.
Tips for using the stewardship and legal defense calculators.
