HOW TO PARTICIPATE? 

STEP 1: NOW
Join us for the 7 days study tour in the US from 20 to 26 of September, 2020.
The European Landowners’ Organization together with The Nature Conservancy invite you to join a week-long study tour of conservation sites in the US’ Mid-Atlantic region. The seats are limited to a maximum of 15 people.
This study tour is organized within the EU LIFE project “Land Is For Ever” and is designed especially for decision makers, private land conservation stakeholders and invited European private landowners and managers.

The 7-day tour will combine class-room sessions with in-field experiences and offer participants the opportunity to meet with local landowners, site managers, conservation organisations, land trusts and state representatives. During the study tour we will visit a range of privately owned and managed areas in a (5 travel days) round trip, starting and finishing in Washington DC.

Besides the interesting presentations and discussions, we will have an opportunity to visit important conservation sites and estates and of course, spend quality group time learning from one another.
