January 2017 Newsletter
Partners for Conservation Board Meets in Salt Lake City

The PFC board of directors met in Salt Lake City during the fourth week of January to consider activities for 2017 supporting the growth of public-private partnerships that sustain our national working landscapes. A number of activities are planned including the 10th Private Lands Partners Day (PLPD)  to be held October 3rd - 5th in Bangor, Maine.  Also on the agenda was a discussion around combining a request for proposals to host PLPD 2018 and PLPD 2019 in the same announcement in the first quarter of 2017.  Be on the lookout for this request if your landscape has interest in bringing this celebration and collaborative conservation networking opportunity to your neck of the woods (or corner of the prairie)! 
PFC Launches New Website and Facebook Page

Longtime subscribers to this newsletter may notice a new design.  Partners for Conservation launched our first webpage in late 2013 and the look of both the website and the newsletter has not changed since that time. This month we debut a new look to both as well as a our first step in to the social media world with a Facebook page. The website and newsletter have been redesigned to be more readable on mobile platforms as well. We hope you enjoy the new look and we will strive to do a better job of communicated what we are up to between newsletters. Make sure to follow us and share with your collaborative conservation-minded friends and neighbors!

Hello from Wintry Montana!

Winter has certainly returned to its roots in my part of the world this year but the good news for the west is that many places are receiving much needed moisture.  At the PFC Board meeting last week in Salt Lake City we met with a number of local partners that were experiencing snow accumulations not seen for 30 years! Its not that much fun now but we will all be very thankful in the spring! Partners for Conservation is experiencing some deferred gratification as we’ve just recently launched our remodeled website and even launched a Facebook page!

Check it out at here  and like us on Facebook  here.  We hope you continue to like us in real life too!

Yours in Conservation
