About This Webinar

When is the last time you looked at the criteria you use to select your organization’s prospective conservation projects? If it’s been a few years, it may be time to revisit your conservation priorities to incorporate equity and climate. Join conservation experts Reggie Hall, The Conservation Fund, and Lena Pollastro, Land Trust of Napa County, both accredited, as they explore how to incorporate climate, mission and equity values when creating (or revising) project selection criteria for current and new projects. This webinar includes live discussion in breakout rooms where participants fill the role of lands committee members tasked with providing guidance for a “green light” or hard “no” on complex acquisition projects. This interactive webinar will sharpen your focus on key parts of the acquisition process that may have significant implications on the permanence of your conservation work and your land trust’s relations with its community.

Here’s a look at what we will cover:

  • Identify sound project selection criteria for considering whether to move forward with a potential project.

  • Tools and resources to help you better evaluate project outcomes and impacts as they relate to climate change and global warming.

  • Strategies for helping your board understand the importance of including equity and/or climate considerations in your project selection criteria.
