Expanding Horizons - Large Landscape Conservation

Resource Type: 

A report on large landscape conservation. It summarizes the first major U.S. conference on natural and cultural landscapes, in which over 650 conservation professionals came together to celebrate progress and share ideas on large-scale collaborations. The report stresses a multi-disciplinary, networked approach to finding natural solutions to issues of human, wildlife, cultural and ecological health.

The foreword by Tony Hiss, a New Yorker staff writer for more than 30 years, is a particularly good read.

Over 30 organizations collaborated to make the conference possible, led by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and host the Chesapeake Conservancy. The report was developed by QLF Atlantic Center through a cooperative agreement with the National Park Service Stewardship Institute. It is available on the website of the Practitioners’ Network for Large Landscape Conservation,
