Balancing Our Relationship with Rural Ecosystems

Land Conservation Assistance Network

The Land Conservation Assistance Network (LandCAN), based out of Falmouth, Maine, was founded in 2000. LandCAN offers conservation resources for farmers, foresters, ranchers, and other landowners who wish to manage their properties and the species that live on them more sustainably and responsibly. Many of LandCAN's resources are educational; they stress wetland and wildlife conservation and tree farm conservation and management, and include the Land and Energy Conservation Toolbox, the Conservation Newsroom, and a robust article library. Beyond educating landowners, LandCAN also directs them towards conservation programs and professional services. The LandCAN Conservation Connection connects landowners to local, regional, and national professionals who specialize in taxes, estate management, and conservation. Further, LandCAN connects landowners to conservation grants and assistance programs offered by the federal government and operates its own Conservation Tax Center. These educational and functional resources work hand-in-hand to engage landowners in concerted conservation efforts.
