Conversations with Veteran Conservation Leaders: A Conference Call Phone Series
Once a month, we schedule a conference call featuring seasoned land conservation professionals sharing their tips for conservation success. Our team of veteran conservation leaders have protected some of the most important special places and environmental resources in the southeastern U.S and are eager to share what they have learned with you, newcomers to the conservation movement or the next generation of land conservation practitioners.

Partnership for Gulf Coast Land Conservation
The Partnership for Gulf Coast Land Conservation is a new coalition of local, regional, state and national land trusts and land conservation organizations devoted to improving land and water conservation on private lands in the Gulf of Mexico coastal region. This initiative is organized under the auspices of the Land Trust Alliance and is patterned after the many successful land protection collaborations operating in other regions of the United States.
