TLTC Hosts 3rd Annual Texas Land Trust Assembly

TLTC hosted its 3rd annual Texas Land Trust Assembly in Bastrop, Texas on November 12 and 13. This two day, land trust summit brings together the leaders from our 30 member organizations across the state for in depth discussion of issues and challenges impacting land trusts statewide. This year's meeting included planning for state advocacy at the Texas legislature for 2015, as well as discussions on data usage for our Conservation Lands Inventory, challenges to conservation easements, and progress on our statewide outreach initiative project.  Many thanks to all of our member land trusts who attended this important event!
