Supporting Municipal Land Stewardship

Monday, October 30, 2023

Join us for this free Planning Smarter event focused on land stewardship and management. Over the past 30 years Montco municipalities have had great success preserving open space to create parks, trails, and greenways. Recently, there has been an increased focus on how to best manage these lands to enhance their ecological integrity while respecting the impact on municipal maintenance expenses and staff capacity. To support this growing emphasis on land stewardship, from both a public and private land perspective, this event will reinforce the importance of open space interconnectedness and the environmental and social values it contributes to the overall landscape. From a practical perspective, there will be a discussion about the varying degrees of land stewardship practices that municipalities can consider. A panel of land stewardship professionals will share their experiences in Montgomery County, lessons learned, and how each community can adapt or initiate their own practices.
