A NOTE FROM THE CHAIR
Happy Holidays from Partners for Conservation!
This time of year is one for both celebration, reflection and anticipation for individuals, families and organizations. Looking back over the last twelve months PFC certainly has a lot of all three to do! We had our tenth annual Private Lands Partners Day in a forested landscape that was not even on our radar when we started. We continued to make connections to great landowners and partners that are putting public-private partnership principles to work in an increasing number of landscapes. Landscapes that are increasing diverse in terms of the country and the specific challenges that they are addressing. We’ve also reflected on what are the most important things that Partners for Conservation can do to help move this way of working along and will be acting on that in 2018 and beyond.
You might not realize it with the news we hear every day, but all across the country individuals from across the spectrum of public and private landscape interests continue to get things done to benefit the communities where they live and the places that they care about. While we celebrate what we’ve been able to do over the last 12 months, we are looking forward to what we hope to get started in 2018. And we hope you are along for the ride!
Happy Holidays to you all, I hope that all of you are able to spend some time with those you care about most and thank you for all you do for people and nature!
Yours in Conservation
