The Conservation Program Handbook

From 1988 through 2008, voters nationwide approved nearly $54 billion for park, open space, and other conservation purposes. Despite substantial funding for land protection, there has not been a book available to guide officials as they implement voter mandates, until now.

The Conservation Program Handbook was researched and written in response to numerous requests to TPL from community leaders seeking guidance with how to effectively and efficiently conserve iconic local landscapes. It provides all the information that conservation professionals need to initiate or evaluate a local conservation land acquisition program including:

  • Advice compiled and distilled from a nationwide study of successful conservation efforts.
  • Best practices for the most critical issues conservationists can expect to face.

Softcover, 264 pages.
