Our Guiding Principles
Comprehensive approach to manage and conserve productive working landscapes while meeting desired ecological, economic and social outcomes.
- Willing Participation
Intended to benefit all those who choose to be involved and not impose unreasonable requirements or restrictions on landowners.
- Inherently Collaborative
Work with landscape partners to establish goals, develop management plans, leverage resources, and monitor progress.
- Local Solutions-Broadly Informed
Identify local challenges and work locally to find and share successful approaches.
- Overcoming Barriers
Discover real or perceived barriers and find ways to remove or overcome them in a timely manner.
- No “One-Size Fits All”
Effective outcome-based land management will need to be adapted to a local setting and require extensive flexibility, thus a rigid and prescriptive framework will not work.
