2021 Salazar Symposium
Sep 28 - 30
Tuesday, September 28, 2021 - Thursday, September 30, 2021 Online

In 2021, Colorado State University’s Salazar Center for North American Conservation symposium on conservation impact will convene leaders from the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Indigenous territories to explore the state of progress toward national and international large landscape conservation goals, such as the America the Beautiful strategy (aka 30×30) and Canada’s Pathway to Target One.

In particular, conversations will focus on transboundary partnerships, the role of Indigenous nations, and best practices to achieve 30×30 at the continental scale. Get a look at science and data, policies, and case studies that support the benefits of transboundary work for biodiversity, climate, and human resilience.

Y2Y’s president and chief scientist, Dr. Jodi Hilty, will be in attendance.

The Salazar Center explores best practices for landscape connectivity, urban conservation, and inclusivity. It was founded in 2018 by Ken Salazar, a beloved western native and former Colorado Attorney General, US Senator, and Secretary of Interior.
