A Phone Conversation with Conservation Professionals: Southeast Program Series

About the Series

Developed for land trusts in the Southeast region, “Conversations with Conservation Leaders” is a conference call series in which seasoned conservation experts share their experiences, lessons learned and best practices with next-generation leaders and newcomers to the field.


Thanks to the generous support of the Friends of the Southeast Program this event is a complimentary service of the Land Trust Alliance. We encourage you to have multiple participants use the same phone line (there is a limit of 150 phone lines), but please let us know everyone planning to attend so we have an accurate participant count.
