In the face of accelerating climate and biodiversity crises, state and territorial lawmakers, agencies, and governors across the country are stepping up to conserve remaining natural areas and ensure that access to nature’s benefits can be shared by all.

Join the Center for American Progress and the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators for keynote remarks by White House Council on Economic Quality Chair Brenda Mallory and a conversation with state leaders from California, Colorado, New Mexico, and Maryland to reflect on recent land conservation policy successes, share lessons learned, and explore opportunities to scale up state-level progress.

To learn more about state and territorial conservation efforts, read CAP and the NCEL’s new report, which maps out the many policy tools utilized by states and territories for land conservation and highlights recent examples of state-level leadership from across the country.
