Title: National Conservation Easement Database (NCED): A Vital Information and Planning Resource
Date: Thursday, November 14, 2013 Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PST
Planning tools to address current and future land conservation are increasingly available, but the National Conservation Easement Database (NCED) is the first and only resource providing an up-to-date picture of land in the U.S. under conservation easement. This public-private partnership brings together national conservation groups, local and regional land trusts, and state and federal agencies around a common objective. Mary Bruce Alford, from the Trust for Conservation Finance - National Programs The Trust for Public Land, will introduce NCED, discuss how the database is being used and what others can do to improve upon the work already completed.
