Conversations about the Conservation Lands Network happen all the time and all around the Bay Area. There are meetings with planners, presentations to groups of scientists, and visits to elected officials and their staff. Hundreds of people download the GIS data or use Explorer to better understand the land. Brochures and the Bay Nature article about it are handed out at Gatherings, meetings, or just because. It may not get any press, but the conversation about the Conservation Lands Network is happening and gaining volume.
Tomorrow - Tuesday, May 1 - the Open Space Council's Ryan Branciforte will present the Conservation Lands Network at the 2012 San Francisco Bay Area National Parks Science and Natural Resources Symposium in Fort Mason. He'll talk about the project and all the interesting ways that the Conservation Lands Network is being used around the region.
Check out the agenda. And be sure to say hi to Ryan if you're there. Tell him the blog sent you.
