The Mariposa Creek Parkway Initiative is a model for multi benefit community conservation in which the central riparian corridor of a community is the anchor and epicenter of partnership building. This session will describe how a local land trust, Tribe, local government, and arts organizations are working together to address community needs including land preservation, restoration incorporating Traditional Ecological Knowledge, Tribal engagement, housing, recreation, and economic development. The project partners will detail lessons learned including keys to partnership development and addressing pain points. Lear about multi-stakeholder project structure, diversifying financing and resource development. Sierra Foothill Conservancy (SFC) and partners will describe their roles in the planning, acquisition of property, funding structure, and how securing the land enabled a cascade of benefits, including innovative partnership development, restoration (in the form of fuels management, native planting, invasive removal), education, affordable housing, economic vitality, and the arts. The Mariposa Creek Parkway Initiative is a transformational community partnership amongst the Southern Sierra Miwuk Nation, County of Mariposa, Mariposa Arts Council, community development organizations and non-profit affordable housing developers and the local trust which can serve as a model for the pluralistic future of conservation.
