As a 30-year old stewardship organization that serves the entire state, we have cultivated local partnerships and can offer our expertise in that regard. We also have a highly diverse funding model that may be adaptable to other programs. We effectively use social media and other marketing efforts, including use of technology through a new app to launch in June that creates easier and more effective ways to engage the public. We are always happy to collaborate and share as a means of expanding and promoting stewardship throughout the state.Increase accessIncrease connectivity to trails, open spaces, rivers, parksIncrease knowledge and comfortability in specific skill setsSkills trainingCommunity outreachincrease engagement in outdoor activities by combining training and sponsoring opportunities to go afield1
