Partners for Conservation is a national landowner-led group that believes effective conservation and keeping working lands working are compatible goals.

PFC partnerships have established strong credibility with Federal partners at the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Department and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. These efforts have increased support for voluntary conservation cooperation, reduced the need to list some species under ESA and enabled landowners to keep working lands working.

Group Solutions, Inc. was engaged to provide professional consulting and facilitation services to explore the steps needed to address sustainable growth, funding and other topics.

Prior to the session, a baseline assessment of perceived strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats was conducted to establish starting points for discussion. Workshop discussions developed a shared vision of a presence in all 50 states and charted and action strategies and team charters for accomplishing these goals.
