The 5th annual statewide Land Trust Conference will be hosted by the California Council of Land Trusts this year  in Sacramento on February 24-25. A few of us here at the ESLT will be journeying over the Sierra Nevada to attend two days of dynamic lectures with special emphasis on issues facing land trusts during the present financial climate. Karen, our Executive Director, will be attending “Land Trust Accreditation from A to Z” and “New Legal Rules for Non-profits.”   Serena and Mary, our Outreach crew, will be attending “Land Trusts 101,” and “Increasing Land Trust Relevance to Your Local Community.” Also attending will be Tony Taylor, Board President, and Stephen Ingram, member of the board. Stay tuned for a report when we return.
