IDEAL Adjustments to Protecting Our Lands
Reducing the risk of catastrophic wildfires is a main concern for organizations like Placer Land Trust. The heat & fire portion of the Natural DIsaster Expo will discuss proactive means and sustainable solutions to control wildfires and the overall losses of human life and property damage caused by heat. In 2021, over 58,000 wildfires occurred, with over 7 million acres burned, and an estimated $70 billion to $90 billion worth of damages throughout The United States, making the need for education and discussion on the topic of wildfire and heat-related disasters essential. Making sure that your business and community is equipped to help prevent heat related disasters is important but knowing what to do in case of an emergency is also very important.
In the 1980s, there was a massive growth and development launch in the area of Placer County. The real estate industry and business market was skyrocketing. There was a small group of people close to the development process that became concerned that this advancement without concern for the environment would cause irreparable damage to this sacred area of land. One initial discussion brought forth the Placer Land Trust and Nature Center in 1991. In 2002, they split into two separate nonprofit organizations in order to both properly focus on their mission. Placer Land Trust has since then developed into the premiere nonprofit organization protecting Placer County’s wide open wonders, natural playgrounds and the overall quality of life enjoyed by so many in the region.
Placer Land Trust believes that the preservation of wild open spaces, farms and ranches, natural resources and natural playgrounds are vital to our quality of life today and in the future. They work with willing landowners and conservation partners to permanently protect and care for natural and agricultural lands in Placer County for current and future generations. Our history in this country hasn’t always been the best when it comes to proper acknowledgment of land and multicultural contributions but Placer Land Trust is working with local Native American tribes to help address this injustice.
This is an organization that has a high sense of integrity, accountability and adaptability to our ever changing world. Their dedication to making sure they remain relevant and effective by using the science-based best practices with adaptivity, creativity and risk taking as they navigate through developing challenges like adaptation to climate change. Placer Land Trust has a diverse set of projects to provide broad public benefits like clean air and water, along with biodiversity promotion.
Placer Land Trust has mitigated 11,967 total acres to be placed under protected land. They are currently working on 65 projects and is the only private, local organization that works with interested landowners and donors to protect natural land in Placer County. They are accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission and the first land trust in the SIerra to be awarded this designation. At the natural disaster expo it will feature awards in innovation, mitigation and resilience.
Most trade shows come at a high cost and not many benefits that are worth the cost. We offer all of our targeted visitors free attendance to the show which results in massive attendance rates. We are working with industry leaders to create an exceptional program of seminars, live demos and features for the benefit of the most proactive and ambitious community outreach and industry growth to date. Make sure that you register to attend this free event at the Anaheim Convention Center scheduled for November 9th and 10th.
