The goal of this workshop is to introduce templates for a management plan as well as policies and procedures that can be adapted for your own organizations. We will take time during this workshop to discuss the value and purpose of having policies and procedures in place to guide management plan development as well as walk through the different components that make up a management plan and how each plays a role in helping the land trust implement its vision for the property.
