In the U.S., over 80% of eastern forests and grasslands as well as 80% of lands in New England are privately held, necessitating innovative partnerships between conservationists and private landowners to conserve biodiversity. The Cornell Land Trust Bird Conservation Initiative builds Conservation Collaboratives, which are strategic and coordinated partnerships that bring neighboring land trusts and partners together to focus conservation efforts on private lands where protection and management are most needed and effective by using birds as indicators of healthy habitats. One such collaborative in New England, the Northeast Bird Habitat Conservation Initiative (NBHCI), includes Regional Conservation Partnerships (RCP), which are 54 networks of private and public organizations, including land trusts, who work together to develop and implement shared, long-term conservation visions across regional boundaries. NBHCI partners meet their shared RCP and land trust objectives and ecological priorities by identifying and connecting with landowners, helping to scale efforts for at-risk birds and their associated habitats throughout the Northeast. This workshop will demonstrate how this collaborative model successfully uses eBird to assist with community engagement, stewardship, and land prioritization efforts, employs forestry practices that utilize birds as ambassadors for sustainable forest management and increased climate adaptation, and implements restorative grassland practices with management changes that balance needs of both birds and farmers. We will show how partnerships developed within such a framework as the RCP Network can lead to more collective climate resiliency across a larger landscape through these land prioritization, healthy forest, and sustainable grassland practices.
