Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation present:
CONSERVATION IN A CHANGING CLIMATE
MAY 14, 2019 | 8 A.M. – 5 P.M.
FOUNDERS HALL at Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site
OBJECTIVES: Educate attendees about the scope of the daunting, but actionable, climate change challenge in the region and how it may be addressed, both by on-the-ground protection and through responsible, proactive policy at the local, state and federal levels. At the end of the day, attendees will be better informed about solutions being employed in communities across the U.S., innovative approaches on the horizon, and given tools to take back to their organizations. More info and registration information.
Check out a new report prepared by OSI staff that identifies a handful of high-impact strategies to expand & advance land conservation in the Lowcountry & Chicago Region. The team of Delta Institute, Open Space Institute, & The Lyme Timber Company selected these from a list of 60+ emerging approaches (all of which are in the appendix).
