Questionnaire: Study on Land Trust Climate Change Adaptation Practices

In partnership with Dr. Michael Drescher from the School of Planning at the University of Waterloo, we’ve made a questionnaire investigating land trust climate change adaptation strategies available to our members.  Through this research Dr. Drescher seeks to better understand the awareness and perception land trusts have of climate change, as well as any adaptation strategies they may be implementing.

If you are interested in participating in this study and sharing information on your land trust’s activities, please review the letter explaining this research project and complete the questionnaire below! The information you provide will enhance knowledge about land trusts’ current climate change adaptation strategies and would be beneficial for planning future conservation efforts. We also hope that upon completion of this study, that our land trust community’s immense efforts to improve environmental health, stability, and resilience will be recognized, thus improving opportunities to garner various kinds of government and private support related to climate change action. It is estimated that the questionnaire will take an hour to complete and we highly encourage working in groups in order to best represent the opinion of your land trust.

Thank you for your participation, we hope to hear from you soon!
