Conservation Horizons


The California Council of Land Trusts created the Conservation Horizons initiative to ensure that conservation’s future is as successful as our past has been. Changes in culture, demographics, politics, finances and climate are spurring us to reconsider organizations, priorities, methods and funding. Most importantly, we need to understand who our conservation programs are serving, with whom we are working and what else we need to conserve—considering our relationships to both people and land—along the way.

The Conservation Horizons Committee will help lead, shape, describe and offer pathways for the land trust community and its partners into our collective future.
