Innovations on the Land: Private Conservation for the Public Good
Date: July 25 - 26, 2013
The majority of the land in the United States is privately owned, so America’s farmers, ranchers, and foresters are critical to the health of our natural resources. To exchange ideas about agriculture and conservation, Sand County Foundation, Nebraska Cattlemen, Nebraska Land Trust, and University of Nebraska – Lincoln’s Center for Grassland Studies will bring together dozens of Leopold Conservation Award-winning landowner conservationists for Innovations on the Land: Private Conservation for the Public Good.
The symposium will convene leading farmers, ranchers and foresters to address private-public partnerships, conservation and economics, and other issues important to the agricultural community and the general public.
