Vital Lands Illinois
Facilitation & Planning
Vital Lands Illinois envisions an interconnected system of land and water of sufficient scale and ecological health to allow habitat, wildlife, and people to thrive. Vital Lands Illinois is an extraordinary collaborative of conservation leaders across the state of Illinois to pursue this vision. The Groundswell Alliance provides network facilitation and planning services to advance their critical work on integrative conservation and climate change.
What we’ve accomplished:
Created and adopted the lens of integrative conservation in order to expand and transform conservation work beyond land trusts.
Further committed to community conversation efforts to include the voices of those most impacted by climate change and pollution.
Boldly called out climate change is the critical issue for all conservation efforts.
