March 24, 2020 | As Board Chair, I am excited to present Conservation Legacy’s Strategic Plan for the next three years. It represents the values of the organization and our commitment to providing high quality, innovative, and impactful work that supports our world today and for future generations.
Our direction was generated through an intense, year-long environmental scan, including surveys and interviews with Conservation Legacy’s key internal and external stakeholders. I am proud of how Conservation Legacy board members, staff, members, and supporters choose to tackle difficult goals and grateful that our partners have embraced taking on those challenges. In the upcoming years you will see Conservation Legacy as a leader in our field—increasing the presence of historically underrepresented populations among corps, facilitating an adaptable, innovative and entrepreneurial work style, and in our use of technology.
I joined Conservation Legacy because I can see the power of our work every day, whether it’s building trail, researching impact on wildlife habitat, responding to a disaster or empowering our nation’s current and future environmental leaders. The preceding work contributes and sustains the development of individuals as they grow in their human capital. Our daily work shows both immediate results and sets the foundation for long-term positive impacts on the health of our lands, air, water, and community.
Read our 2020-2022 Strategic Plan!
Today, the Conservation Legacy team is moving forward with renewed energy and optimism. It is our deep care for the environment, the communities in which we work, and the people who make our programs possible, that strengthen our organization. Please join us in progressing this exciting work and, through it, leave your own legacy of environmental stewardship.
Sincerely, Enrique E. Figueroa, Ph. D.
