Stacy Meyers, Ssnior counsel, has worked at Openlands since 2006 to strengthen conservation and environmental law and policies on a regional, state and national level. With the help of her team, Stacy manages Openlands' portfolio of 58 conservation easements across over 3,000 acres of land. She and the Openlands land preservation team provide technical assistance to acquire and transfer open space to agencies and communities, from inner city pocket parks, to vast sweeping natural landscapes. Stacy's goal is to engage communities, policymakers, agencies and the conservation community to accelerate the speed and scale of conservation to meet the goal of conserving 30% of natural lands and waters by 2030, and be resilient to climate change. She collaborates with others to incubate new models that preserve and expand our natural lands and waters for all people where they live.
