Reflections from Judy, April 2018
Spring may actually surface in the northeast this month. It’s a good time to think about how climate change is impacting our communities and how we can help those we care about connect the dots. As Bob Ingils (South Carolinian, Republican, Energy and Enterprise Initiative (“E&EI”) www.republicen.org) notes, you often can’t talk about the problem until you find solutions people are comfortable with.
That means, more than ever before, we need to consider steps large and small related to how people can make a difference. It’s something we all can be part of. If you know of land trusts helping to do just that I’d love to hear from you.
Reflections for land trusts, March 2018
I’m delighted you’ve joined with others interested in how land trusts, and people like you, can make a difference in slowing down climate change.
With climate change, the most significant threat to long-term conservation, land trusts across the country are finding ways to inspire people in their communities to take action.
For some, it’s empowering them to be spokespeople to share what they are seeing and linking it to solutions. I’ll be sharing examples of land trusts who are taking action.
I think you’ll enjoy this video from the Northwest Arkansas Land Trust. They’re a small land trust taking a big leadership step in prioritizing climate awareness and action, one day at a time.
Reflections from Judy, February 2018
As promised at last summer’s Land Trust Alliance New York Advisory Board retreat, here is the first edition of my climate and conservation e-News.
The goal of the monthly e-News will be to provide a variety of articles and observations focusing on the impact of, and solutions to, climate change with an emphasis on mitigation (slowing climate change down, and transitioning away from fossil fuels). I’ll be looking for land trusts leading in this area.
At this point, the NY LTA Advisory group and a few others are part of the email list for this email. I will be expanding the list once I complete my website. If you do not wish to be part of this group, feel free to unsubscribe.
Thanks for caring about conservation, climate, and the difference we can make.
