The 2004 Pennsylvania Land Conservation Conference will take place April 2–3 at the Historic Strasburg Inn in Lancaster County.

The conference will feature four intensive, daylong and half-day seminars, field trips, 17 workshops, roundtables in three concurrent sessions, and a reception and dinner with Ed McMahon of the Conservation Fund.

The plenary speaker is Mike DiBerardinis, secretary of Pennsylvania’s Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

The conference is Pennsylvania’s annual training and networking event for those involved with public and private land conservation efforts, and brings together land trust professionals and volunteers; municipal officials; state agency staff; attorneys; planners; and other conservation professionals.

It offers an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of land conservation and organizational management, delve more deeply into land conservation techniques and organizational management and to hear the latest on public policy issues and conservation matters.
