CBI Host


Join American Farmland Trust experts, Justin Brice from Conservation Biology Institute, and Vicky Espinoza from NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory for a panel discussion and presentations on innovations in agricultural land protection in California.

Receive a demonstration of AFT and CBI’s Project Prioritization Tool (PPT). This conservation decision-making tool is designed to increase the adoption of water infiltration practices, improve groundwater recharge, and protect agricultural land at high risk of development in the San Joaquin Valley. Participants will receive a PPT Manual for future use.

Vicky Espinoza will discuss the components of California’s successful Multi-benefit Land Repurposing Program grants and the approach for strategic land repurposing in the Tule Subbasin.

We look forward to seeing you there!
