As Thanksgiving approaches, Partnership for Conservation is taking time to reflect on the many things we have to be thankful for. We’re particularly thankful for the beautiful lands we’ve been blessed with and the natural wonders America has to offer.
We’re also thankful for the lands that our members have permanently protected through conservation partnerships. As this year comes to a close and we enter a new decade, conservation is more important than ever. We’ve made significant progress in 2019 and will continue to fight in 2020 to ensure all Americans have access to the tools needed to conserve our nation’s most precious lands. Future generations deserve to enjoy the same beautiful lands and open spaces that we do, but we cannot leave them a better world without the opportunity to use all conservation tools to protect important lands all across our nation.
That’s why we’re fighting to protect private conservation, while advocating for improvements to the federal conservation easement law. Land conservation cannot fall solely on federal, state and local governments. Private individuals and groups of private individuals play an important role in conserving lands across America to preserve scenic open spaces, protect wildlife habitats, improve water quality and more.
We’re thankful for the positive impacts partnership conservation efforts have had thus far, and we look forward to the many conservation efforts ahead in 2020.
