Increasing Efficiency & Reach
With a wide array of potential projects, it is necessary for WRLT to leverage investment in conservation to serve multiple goals simultaneously. The Land Trust works to realize a triple-bottom-line with all of our projects: achieving economic, environmental, and social benefits, interrelated factors necessary for enduring success. Our work has the potential to demonstrate alternative management techniques and novel solutions to complex problems, and we prioritize projects that showcase innovation and impact and build new partnerships. Additionally, while each property will be evaluated on its own merits, anchor properties that serve as key "footholds" in areas of critical importance will be given additional consideration. Finally, the Land Trust works to incorporate the best science and values of the communities we serve in a long-range plan for our work.
