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.

The inaugural installment of the series was hosted by the University of California, Berkeley’s Institute for Parks, People and Biodiversity and explored the current effectiveness of biodiversity conservation, especially in light of climate change, within existing national parks, wilderness areas, national conservation areas, and other legally protected federal and state public lands. Panelists also discussed actions needed to meet the Convention on Biological Diversity goals of 30 by 30.

With support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Wilburforce Foundation, the Salazar Center hosted a half-day workshop, as part of its second annual International Symposium for Conservation Impact, for organizations seeking to improve the success of their conservation efforts in rural areas of the western United States.

The workshop convened participants to explore their interactions with rural communities and better prepare them to be successful in that work. Together, the group identified and unpacked the challenges and opportunities that are unique to conservation advocacy work in these areas, as well as the impact of other related factors—such as rural economic transitions, private lands, and human-wildlife conflict—on these efforts.

We highlighted powerful personal stories about rural community collaboration from a diversity of stakeholders, alongside research on environmental issues in rural western communities, including the Do’s and Don’ts of working on environmental issues in rural western communities and strategies for engagement, communications, issue framing, and relationship building.

You can view the complete agenda, as well as variety of recordings from the virtual workshop:

This playlist provides the complete recording of the workshop in three parts.

Recordings from the workshop include:

  • Part 1, featuring Kendall Edmo (Blackfeet Tribe), Angelina Gonzalez-Aller (Center for Large Landscape Conservation), and Ben Alexander (Resources Legacy Fund)
  • Part 2, featuring Teresa Martinez (Continental Divide Trail Coalition), Simon Sotelo (New Mexico Wild), and Dr. Robert Bonnie (Duke University)
  • Part 3, highlighting lessons learned and common themes

In this second session of our two-part series on large landscape conservation, we discussed strategies being used by private landowners to advance conservation at scale and explore the role of private land conservation and working lands in large land conservation efforts. To learn more about the large landscape conservation movement in North America in general, check out the first webinar, Land Conservation at Scale.

This webinar featured private lands conservation experts Rye Austin, Lesli Allison, and Erik Glenn.

“How much nature do we need?” is a question the Salazar Center is working to bring to the forefront of the conservation conversation, and we’re interested in emerging ideas on this topic such as the 30×30 goal, Half Earth, and Nature Needs Half. The large landscape conservation movement in North America is foundational to this goal of preventing and reversing the loss of our continent’s natural places, so in this installment of our Connecting for Conservation series, Dr. Rebecca Shaw and Heath Nero provided background about the groups working to preserve these landscapes and how they’re doing it, and the scientific basis for the movement.

Building trust is critical to successful conservation programs. Understanding the communities you are working in, their beliefs and histories, is critical to establishing a solid foundation, along with careful thinking on your approach to engagement. In this Connecting for Conservation session, two expert practitioners discussed their work and shared best practices.

This was a special Earth Day edition of the Salazar Center’s Connecting for Conservation webinar series, featuring former Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar! Secretary Salazar was joined by Professor Stephen Mumme of Colorado State University in a discussion of cross-border conservation in North America. They explored successes, challenges, and opportunities for the future through examples such as Big Bend National Park, the Crown of the Continent, and the Colorado River Delta.

In this installment of the Connecting for Conservation webinar series, our goal was to share some much-needed warmth and levity – and useful information, too! – in light of the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. We explored the power of stories to win support for conservation projects and how narratives can be framed in ways that capture the attention of the public.

The webinar featured storytellers Valerie Tutson and Luke Runyon.

Co-hosted by the Salazar Center and Bird Conservancy of the Rockies, this Summit will bring together a cross-section of conservation leaders and practitioners from across Canada, United States, and Mexico to develop a unified framework to guide and inform grassland conservation efforts and investment strategies for the next 10 years. Several grassland conservation efforts are underway, and this is an opportunity to bring them together in a unified framework. Together we will work toward common goals, address greatest needs, and contribute collectively to a sustainable landscape for migratory birds, pollinators, other wildlife, people, agriculture, and natural resource production throughout the Central Flyway.
