Western Landowners Alliance presents this panel discussion on the New Era of Conservation in advance of and in partnership with the Trailing of the Sheep Festival. The conversation will focus on the importance of both private and public lands, the critical role of agriculture in conservation, and obstacles that landowners face in stewarding these landscapes. The panel will also touch on the idea of stewardship beyond boundaries: the need for all of us—landowners, sportsmen, recreationalists, ranchers, urban residents—to look beyond the boundaries of our land or immediate self-interests.
Panelists will include Lesli Allison, the CEO of the Western Landowners Alliance, Cameron Westcamp, the Operations Manager for Rinker Rock Creek Ranch, and a local producer. The discussion will be moderated by Eric Winford, Associate Director of the University of Idaho Rangeland Center.
