About This Webinar

This webinar has been postponed to June 28.

We all know that conservation is not finished when the easement is signed and recorded. No, it is an ongoing partnership between landowner and land trust that works best when it is structured as a holistic process that begins at the first conversation and carries on through annual monitoring and landowner engagement. Join stewardship experts Jesica Blake, Coastal Land Trust, and Erin Van Waus, Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, as they discuss how to make the transition from project to stewardship as seamless as possible. Filled with stories and lessons learned, this webinar will leave plenty of time for participant questions and discussion. 

Here's a look at what we will cover:

  • What acquisition staff need to know about stewardship to draft a strong easement

  • Strategies for determining who does what to ensure the handoff to stewardship is seamless

  • File-keeping and checklists to make sure it all gets done
