A new handbook aimed at driving collaborative conservation in New England, New York, and beyond, has been released by Highstead and the RCP Network. The Regional Conservation Partnership (RCP) Handbook captures the experiences of RCPs to date and outlines 10 steps identified as important to RCP success.
Building upon the knowledge gained from partnerships that are part of the RCP Network, the Handbook is organized around the three fundamental stages of RCP growth (Emerging, Maturing, and Conserving).
“This Handbook gathers the best of what we have learned about collaborative conservation through the RCP Network,” said Bill Labich, coordinator of the RCP Network. “When RCPs pool their knowledge about what works and what doesn’t work, we can collaborate smarter and conserve land better and faster.”
