Ready to connect the dots? Help us identify and build the connections between the woods, farms, wildlands, and waterways that link New England’s rural to urban landscapes. The annual RCP Network Gathering brings together conservation professionals, land use managers, academics, and more in a workshop-based event to build the capacity of RCPs and land trusts to protect land. Our “whole landscape” approach to this year’s event will rely on story exchange and cross-sector networking hand in hand with presentations and facilitated discussion to inspire conference goers to up their game to reach local and regional land protection goals. Our new venue is at University of Massachusetts Amherst, and we are expanding our workshop offerings to six tracks focused on future scenarios planning, communications, funding conservation, forestry and farming, smart growth and land use planning.
