The COVID pandemic brought unprecedented challenges for community engagement in land conservation, chief among them the inability to bring people to protected lands. Yet many of the solutions developed to overcome COVID can continue to be leveraged to increase accessibility to protected lands, adapt to the effects of climate change, and continue protecting our critical natural resources. By the nature of our work, we protect the most vulnerable and sensitive habitats in the world that are often threatened by overuse from increased access. During this session, participants will hear what we learned from the 2020 pivot to virtual programs, and the methods we developed for reducing barriers and increasing inclusivity, in addition to ideas for future applications that will preserve conservation values while advancing community engagement goals. Presenters represent a diversity of organizational structures, sizes, missions, and strategies, but all have experienced significant success in virtual conservation programs with noted increases in equitable access. Attendees will also learn about a funder’s priorities and shifts to accommodate virtual programs, an environmental education and stewardship organization’s effort to expand accessibility, and a land trust’s foray into virtual hikes and school field trips all through immersive multimedia videos, photos, and storytelling. At the end of the presentation, a resource handout will be provided with quick tips, practical advice, and best practices for anyone to implement or improve their own virtual programs.
