NEW YORK, NY —October 16, 2016 — Thirteen OSI staff will attend the 2016 Land Trust Alliance Rally in Minneapolis later this month, and several will present or facilitate a number of workshops focused on climate change and transborder land conservation. 

On October 27, Peter Howell, OSI’s Executive Vice President in charge of our Conservation Capital Program, will participate on a panel on conservation across the US-Canadian border. The panel is part of a daylong workshop sponsored by the International Land Conservation Network that will focus on cross-border collaboration for private land conservation. Peter will speak about OSI’s Transborder Land Protection Fund, which has conserved 43,960 acres of land in northern New England and southeastern Canada. Workshop panels will feature case studies from Mexico, the European Union, and other locations around the world.

For more information please visit http://www.landconservationnetwork.org.

Abigail Weinberg, OSI’s Director of Research, will speak about climate science and land conservation at a breakfast session October 29 sponsored by the Practitioners’ Network for Large Landscape Conservation. The session, jointly sponsored by the Lincoln Institute for Land Policy and Highstead, will include conservation practitioners from across the U.S. Abby will highlight successful efforts by land trusts to incorporate resilience science developed by The Nature Conservancy at the landscape scale into local conservation planning.

Additional information on speakers and details can be found here.

On October 29 at 10:30 am, Joel Houser, OSI’s new Southeast Coordinator, will participate on a panel on climate change and land conservation (A19: Taking the Lead on Climate Change: A Discussion About the Role of Land Trusts). Panelists in the session, facilitated by Peter Howell and LTA’s Erin Heskett, will share their experiences in incorporating climate science in efforts to mitigate the impacts of climate change through land conservation. You may view a fuller workshop description here

On October 30 from 8:30 am – 12 noon, Abigail Weinberg will facilitate a two-part workshop entitled “Updating Conservation Priorities and Management Strategies to Reduce Climate Change Risks” (Sessions D16 & E15). The first session will describe large-scale assessments designed to identify “climate resilient” areas for conservation. The second session will emphasize site-scale applications, providing examples of how and where land trusts and partners have incorporated climate science on the ground. You may view fuller workshop descriptions here for Part I and Part II.

We look forward to seeing you all at the Land Conservation Rally!
