Nothing to give? Think again! The pace and scale of changes to the climate are prompting many land trusts to ask how they can reach beyond the geographic boundaries of their organizational missions and maximize their impact in regions where they work. In this interactive session, participants will learn and practice strategies to inventory their organization’s strengths and identify their potential to contribute to the greater good, regardless of organizational size, operating budget, or capacity. Featuring the Pollinator Pathway Program, a case study from the Hudson to Housatonic (H2H) Regional Conservation Partnership (970,000 acres), we will spotlight the enormous contributions some of the partnership’s smallest members have made to advance strategic conservation of climate resilient land and community engagement in stewardship. Workshop facilitators will demonstrate how land trusts of varying capacities can have significant impact on regional initiatives. Participants will be introduced to an interactive model used for inventorying their talents and those of others on their team, leveraging limited resources and harnessing interpersonal relationships to move multiple organizations toward a common vision.
