A virtual discussion on how to harness a strategic and cost-effective solution, to address freshwater flooding 

Join the Land Trust Alliance and Open Space Institute on Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 10:30 a.m. EST for a virtual regional discussion on the role that land trusts in the Northeast can play in addressing freshwater flooding — a growing threat to water quality, human lives, and built infrastructure — through science-based conservation planning, targeted land acquisition, and other tools. 

Strategic land protection is an effective and cost-saving strategy to mitigate flood impacts to communities, while realizing a host of other benefits. OSI will share findings from recent research on a range of strategies land trusts are already employing, and you will hear about a selection of these approaches from land trust practitioners. Participants will be invited to share their experiences and provide feedback on challenges and opportunities in smaller discussions. 

This session is ideal for land trusts interested in learning about data and approaches to more effectively harness land protection for flood resilience, and for those already doing this work to learn more, provide feedback, and connect with peers.

Registration is required by November 30. Read the companion flyer for this free virtual session here.

This is a free virtual session with generous support from the Jane’s Trust Foundation.
