The annual RCP Network Gathering is a keystone event for the RCP Network and conservationists throughout the region. Initially a one-day conference, the Gathering has made a successful transition to an online webinar, with hopes to return to a hybrid or in-person event.

The RCP Network Gathering provides a dedicated opportunity for people working on collaborative landscape conservation across the region to benefit from the insights of their peers and from technical training workshops and expert panels. It is a place to connect with colleagues to share successes and challenges and learn new skills. This event helps RCPs individually and collectively continue to grow in strength and numbers, increasing the pace and scale of conservation in their communities and across the Northeastern US and beyond.

During the 2021 RCP Network Gathering, we heard real-world examples and shared ideas of how Land Justice and collaborative landscape conservation could be locally driven, replicated, and scaled-out to create stronger, more equitable, and resilient communities and regions.

The Gathering featured a keynote speaker, breakout sessions for peers to connect, and two moderated panel sessions with discussions following.
