The Sonoma Valley Wildlands Collaborative is a partnership between state, county and nonprofit land management organizations, working to improve wildfire resilience across 18,000 acres of public and private lands. Formed after the 2017 North Bay wildfires, our work is focused on fuel management and forest resilience projects, but the magic is the model of partnership. Built on consensus decision-making and a Memorandum of Agreement, the partnership provides opportunities for larger and more flexible funding streams, improved coordination and stakeholder engagement and resource sharing. Sonoma Land Trust is a member of the Collaborative, and acts as administrative lead on grant procurement and management. Since inception, we have received $3 million in state and foundation grants, and sped up the pace and scale of work in the region through coordination and capacity building. The flexibility of the land trust structure, in particular the ability to provide innovative financial and contract arrangements, allows this partnership to be more productive together than each of us can be on our own. The Collaborative is focused around wildfire recovery and resilience, but the structure and lessons from this session can be adapted and applied to conservation land challenges in any region or ecosystem.
