With conservation funding and tax incentives under attack, it is important for every land trust to develop relationships with public officials and their staff. But you don’t need to fly to Washington or your state capital! Real relationships are born in the district, where your genuine local support, diverse partnerships, and the emotional impact of places you conserve are on full display. Learn how land trusts around the country have used Land Trust Alliance tools to organize site visits, in-district meetings, and other creative events to make lasting impressions and open the door to funding opportunities they never knew existed.
