Advanced Lake Leaders - North

Description

All Lake Leader graduates are encouraged to participate in this year’s Advanced Leadership Training.  We will use these day-long trainings to continue exploring the topic of Relational Capacity Building. We also want to share our thoughts on the critical role of building relational capacity to ensure the health and sustainability of lakes, rivers, and watersheds. 
 
This northern session will highlight land trusts and their role in protecting landscapes that in turn protect lakes. Related challenges involve funding for land trusts and the need for people to participate in land stewardship projects (such as upland invasive species management).
