Alliance Ask an Expert Will Focus on Youth

The Land Trust Alliance Western Program will turn its attention to “Elevating Youth Voices” during a March 17 session, starting at noon Montana time.

 Travis Custer, the executive director of the Montezuma Land Conservancy in southwest Colorado, will lead a discussion about ways to engage, involve and attract the next generation to continue critical conservation work. Volunteer, internship and AmeriCorps programs offer the opportunity to create meaningful experiences for participants and your land trust. Topic areas will include youth programming, youth leadership skills, removing barriers for youth to engage and funding community-based work.

The deadline for land trust staff to register is March 13. Contact Catherine Waterson to register, and contact Amanda Hill with questions for the presenter.
