Landscape conservation (also called “large landscape conservation” or “landscape scale conservation”) brings people together across geographies, sectors, and cultures to collaborate on conserving our important landscapes and the myriad ecological, cultural, and economic benefits they provide. This highly collaborative practice embraces the complexity of working at scale to connect and protect our irreplaceable landscapes – across public and private lands, and from our cities to our wildest places.
The Network for Landscape Conservation partners with the National Park Service to showcase the Connected Conservation webinar series. Monthly webinars highlight topics and tools aimed at furthering the practice of landscape conservation. Explore the webinars – both the archived past webinars and upcoming scheduled webinars – to hear about innovative work underway in the field across the continent.
