Our Webinar Series

With in-person events on hold, we’re planning a whole series of webinars to keep you up to date. Learn about ongoing projects, environmental news, and how Sustainable Conservation can help you reach your goals.

Please join us on Friday, December 11 from 10-11 am for a panel discussion on California Secretary of Natural Resources’ Cutting the Green Tape Initiative. Following the anticipated release of the Cutting the Green Tape recommendations, we will hear from restoration experts about what this initiative is, why it’s needed, and how it will help accelerate restoration and protect our natural resources and ecological systems.

This webinar convened a panel of experts, moderated by Alf Brandt, to talk about what the state, water agencies, and non-profits are doing to ensure all Californians have access to safe and affordable drinking water. We learned about community and state-led efforts, and talked about the challenges and opportunities in this critical work. Watch the recording here!



This webinar focused on the Lagunitas Creek restoration project that was completed by the Salmon Protection and Watershed Network (SPAWN), an initiative of Turtle Island Restoration Network. The project was completed using Sustainable Conservation-sponsored programmatic permits, which help accelerate the pace and scale of habitat restoration statewide. Watch the recording here!



During this webinar, Ashley Boren, Sustainable Conservation’s Executive Director, discussed California’s historic and increasingly variable weather, what we are learning from latest climate research, and how we can adapt for extremes to create a sustainable water future for agriculture, communities, and the environment.
