Members of Virginia’s land trust and conservation community work on communications and messaging techniques last week at a training sponsored by Virginia’s United Land Trusts and the Partnership.
By Jonathan Doherty
This was the second in a series of state-wide training sessions designed to facilitate more effective communications supporting land conservation. It was convened by Virginia’s United Land Trusts and organized in collaboration with the Chesapeake Conservation Partnership and Spitfire Strategies. The Partnership engaged Spitfire last fall to develop a coordinated messaging framework that helps all members engage audiences in talking about conservation.
A similar workshop was held for Maryland land trusts and conservationists in January. A third session is scheduled at the Pennsylvania Land Trust Association conference in May. A toolkit for use by all partners is under development.
