The Lincoln Institute is fully engaged in the topic of land conservation this fall, appearing at the Land trust Alliance in Providence, R.I. this week and celebrating the legacy of Kingsbury Browne; being a partner in the National Workshop on Large Landscape Conservation in Washington D.C. October 23-24, where Interior Secretary Sally Jewell will be a keynoter; and preparing to launch the book Conservation Catalysts: The Academy as Nature’s Agent, at the IUCN World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia in November.
