Huge thanks to the more than 100 land trust representatives, public open space representatives, and conservation practitioners from across Colorado who gathered in Breckenridge on May 9 for a half-day Conservation Futures Project (CFP) summit. The summit offered attendees the chance to:
Learn more about the CFP and its role in helping Colorado’s conservation community envision and launch a new, statewide coalition with the vision, capacity and structure to most effectively guide and support the community as it evolves to meet current and future challenges;
Discuss core purposes and core constituency of the re-imagined coalition in Colorado.
Did you miss the summit, or want to review what happened? You’re in luck – this document summarizes the high points and outcomes. Thanks also to attendees who provided additional comments via the post-event survey – your feedback is being used to help plan future meetings.
The conversation that began in Breckenridge will continue throughout the summer through regional workshops for land trusts, and additional meetings for public agency and professional members of CCLT. These workshops will help the CFP develop potential business model/s for review by the full community at a fall summit, with the goal of launching the new coalition in 2019.
