Description

The original theme for the 2020 Virginia Land Conservation & Greenways Conference was GROW: growing our economy and communities; growing our influence; growing leadership; growing our audience; and even growing beyond the too-comfortable boundaries of our familiar business-as-usual.

We had no way of anticipating exactly how much we would each GROW in 2020. How much we would truly be challenged to rethink business as usual. We need to talk about equity. We need to talk about how outdoor spaces are providing essential health and wellness services. We need to talk about the acres that grow our food and how it gets to our table. We have adapted session proposals.
