With two-thirds of land in the Lower 48 under private ownership, many imperiled species depend on private land for their recovery. 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 access funding to conserve wildlife through habitat protection and restoration, active management for key species, and strategic investments in rare, unique, or exceptional habitats. No funding source fits all land trusts, so our panel will cover a range of federal funding opportunities. Defenders of Wildlife will review funding sources, some of which emphasize climate change adaptation as a priority investment. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will review the Partners for Fish and Wildlife, Coastal, and National Coastal Wetlands Conservation Grants Programs. The Columbia Land Trust will present work they are doing in partnership with tribes and in alignment with climate resiliency data. Wildlife conservation is best advanced by the contributions of people of diverse beliefs and cultures. This workshop covers programs for diverse partners to create healthy ecosystems for all. This work is profoundly, and increasingly, influenced by climate change. Sea level rise is thematic in coastal restoration. These programs can help landowners to recover the value of their land, while allowing the land to be reclaimed as natural habitat. This workshop is relevant to the three Land Trust Standards and Practices related to evaluating and selecting conservation projects and ensuring responsible stewardship of conservation easements and land held in fee for conservation purposes.
