One of the most effective ways CLCA provides information to the state’s conservation community is through the professional development meetings of the New Hampshire Conservation Coalition. CLCA convenes these informal coalition meetings to encourage networking and information exchanges between the staff and volunteers of the 50+ regional, local and state land trusts and others concerned with land conservation in our state. CLCA works with leaders in the local and national land trust community to present and facilitate discussion of current issues, best practices and hot topics in the field.
The field of land conservation is constantly evolving. By fostering collaboration and exchange of information among practioners in the field, CLCA helps to keep the state’s land trusts up to date. As New Hampshire continues to grow at a pace nearly twice as fast as any other New England state, it is imperative to our quality of life, state identity and public health that important natural landscapes are forever protected. National and statewide land conservation groups provide leadership, but other important conservation efforts are made at the regional and local level by small land trusts, local town boards and citizens groups.
The Center for Land Conservation Assistance has convened the New Hampshire Conservation Coalition to assure that the valuable lessons learned, best practices and common experiences of land conservation practitioners are shared among those on the front lines of conservation.
