About This Webinar

Are you looking to connect with new landowners and those who own land neighboring your fee properties, but don't know where to start? If your goal is to reduce stewardship and trespass issues, find new projects on adjacent land or simply to start off on the right foot with landowners in your area, this webinar is for you.

​Judy Anderson of Community Consultants will guide you through how to create an effective communication strategy to build better relationships with landowners and neighbors. Executive directors, acquisition, stewardship and communications staff should attend to learn what to advance and avoid when reaching out. This session will be interactive, so come prepared to discuss example communication pieces and ask questions.

​Here's a look at what we will cover:

  • ​The importance of having a communication strategy.

  • ​Setting objectives for communicating with landowners and neighbors.

  • ​Choosing appropriate contact methods for reaching out to landowners.

  • ​Examples of communications that help foster relationships vs. those that may cause misunderstandings or barriers.

  • ​How to avoid using conservation jargon.​
