This program is a recording of the Live Seminar held on March 15, 2019.

Using a case study of the State’s recent land acquisition of the Helemano Wilderness Recreation Area facilitated by The Trust for Public Land, participants will learn about the basics about how large conservation projects like Helemano, the Turtle Bay conservation easement, and others are accomplished, what is a conservation easement, and how diverse perspectives of public agencies, private landowners, private and public funders, non-profit land conservation organizations, community stakeholders, and elected officials, are reconciled.
