With parks and recreation budgets shrinking, it’s increasingly important to leverage partnerships to get important work done. Partnering with land trusts can help communities create and steward equitable green space when it’s needed most.
On this webinar, you’ll learn from three land trusts that will discuss:
• How they fund projects.
• How they partner with agencies and other organizations in their work.
• Strategies for engaging the community throughout the process – through concept, design, construction, and stewardship.
By leveraging a land trust’s special abilities and expertise in areas such as legal work, fundraising, community engagement, and real estate transactions, agencies and other partners can collaborate with land trusts to complete projects that increase access to green space and recreational opportunities, leading to healthier residents.
