Land Conservation & Climate Change - Capitol Connection webinar

Fallen leaves and a trail at the Johnson Preserve, a property of Legacy Land Conservancy in Washtenaw County

At the heart of the Legacy Land Conservancy's goals is the idea that nature should be available "for ourselves, for our neighbors, forever."

This nonprofit with local residents and governments conserves land and water in Jackson, Lenawee, and Washtenaw counties and beyond. It gives people access to nature; protects water and wildlife; and encourages local, sustainable agriculture.

But the Legacy Land Conservancy also helps prevent the worst effects of climate change. The large swathes of flora the nonprofit protects absorb carbon dioxide, a leading cause of global warming. But there are other, more hidden climate benefits to the organization's work—flood protections, pollution protections, and better agricultural practices.

Land protection manager Susan LaCroix and easement stewardship coordinator Clint McGill work with local residents to protect our land and water. Diana Kern leads the Legacy Land Conservancy. Join them and Michigan Environmental Council President & CEO Conan Smith in our latest Capitol Connection webinar as we zoom into their work and then zoom out to see how it intersects with the climate change fight.
