With two-thirds of land in the Lower 48 under private ownership, many species of conservation concern depend on these privately held forestlands, wetlands, grasslands, marshlands, uplands, and riparian habitats for their persistence in the future. Land trusts are well-positioned to be leaders in stemming the current extinction and climate change crises. This workshop will demonstrate how land trusts can conserve wildlife through habitat improvement and protection, active management for key species, and strategic investments in rare, unique, or exceptional habitats. Because no funding source fits every land trust, our diverse panel will address a range of funding opportunities. Speakers will present resources available to land trusts, such as State Wildlife Action Plans, that can help guide wildlife conservation investments. Speakers will also review funding sources for wildlife conservation on private lands, including various Farm Bill programs, some of which now emphasize climate change adaptation as a priority investment. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will provide an overview on funding assistance and grant opportunities through the Partners for Fish and Wildlife, Coastal, and National Coastal Wetlands Conservation Programs. Representatives from two land trusts will present case studies of work they are doing that benefits wildlife, and the funding sources they use to support that work. Participants will complete the workshop armed with information on how to secure funds and collaborate with partners for wildlife conservation. Participants will also be encouraged to share their success stories, ask questions, or seek advice from the panel or other participants on how to support their current or potential wildlife conservation work.
