The California chapter of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and the Land Trust Alliance partnered to create a two-year grant program for land trusts to access remote sensing technologies for monitoring. This program was based on the TNC’s experience with implementing remote monitoring in California and in chapters nation-wide. Each land trust and TNC Chapter submitted return on investment data that showed a similar spread of experiences and results. Come learn how land trusts and TNC Chapters of different sizes, with land holdings across the continental United States, implemented remote monitoring, found cost and time savings, created new policies and procedures, reduced risk to staff and conservation values and expanded their uses of the technology beyond monitoring. The presenters will discuss unique use cases that address the challenges and solutions that TNC Chapters and land trusts found over a two-year time period.
