The majority of the land in the United States is privately owned, so America's farmers, ranchers, and foresters are critical to the health of natural resources.  In August in Pacific Grove, Calif., the Sand County Foundation (SCF) will bring dozens of award-winning landowner conservationists to exchange ideas about agriculture and conservation -- issues important to the agricultural community and the general public.

The "Innovations on the Land:  Managing for Change" symposium will convene Leopold Conservation Award recipients from across the nation.  These farming, ranching, and forestry families are among the best and brightest leaders inside and outside of the agricultural community.  The event is co-hosted by SCF, the Nebraska Cattlemen, the Nebraska Land Trust, and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Center for Grassland Studies.  The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports SCF.

Among other things, the gathering will provide an opportunity for Leopold Conservation Award recipients, other landowners, and award partners and sponsors to educate, interact, and exchange ideas with award recipients from other states. Together, they will help identify innovative solutions and opportunities involved in private lands conservation.  

Registration information is available online.
