In collaboration with an unprecedented coalition of university centers across the western United States, the Salazar Center is co-hosting a new webinar series! Conservation Conversations will explore the conservation challenges of the future and identify specific policies, programs, and strategies to help secure the long-term health of the nation’s natural resources, wildlife, and landscapes, and broaden the benefits for all Americans.

This installment of the series was hosted by the Andrus Center for Public Policy at Boise State University, and panelists examined popular strategies such as conservation easements and under-recognized challenges such as parallel militarization for conservation across North America. They provided a range of disciplinary perspectives with special attention to the socio-political contexts in which conservation emerge and used examples drawn from the the US-Mexico and US-Canada borders as well as the High Divide region of Idaho and Montana.
