Red-tail Land Conservancy launches new Strategic Conservation Plan

MUNCIE, Ind. The Red-tail Land Conservancy has launched a plan that will guide its work to preserve land in eastern central Indiana for the next 10 to 15 years.

The Local Land Fund’s strategic conservation plan prioritizes ecological biodiversity, natural area connectivity, water quality, carbon sequestration and public accessibility, it was announced Tuesday.

“There is no unlimited money or time to protect the land most vulnerable to being affected by urban development, habitat loss and the effects of climate change,” Red-tail CEO Julie Burgman said in a statement. “It allows us to quickly develop a roadmap to act in response to these rapidly increasing pressures.”

The Red-tail’s Strategic Conservation Plan (SCP) was developed over a two-year period based on scientific research and recommendations from ecologists in the area. Landowners and community members were interviewed for comment as well.
