One of the organizations On Pasture works with to bring you articles every week is the Western Landowners Alliance. WLA recognizes that economic vitality and conservation go hand-in-hand, and they promote policies and practices that sustain private landowners in their work.

To do that best, they need to know what works for you, so they’re working with Virginia Frediani, a masters student at Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment. Virginia is studying landowner and federal agency perceptions of programs that provide financial and technical assistance – programs like EQIP, the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), and Safe Harbor Agreements (SHA).

Her goal is find out what is working or not in these programs from the landowners who participate in them, and the agency employees who implement them. Based on your answers to her online survey, Virginia will produce recommendations on how to improve these programs, including ways to address landowner concerns about enrolling and participating in them.
