Due to growing concerns with the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the BFG Board of Directors is cancelling the Land and Freshwater Conservation Program meeting in Washington. DC. We apologize for the lateness of this cancellation, but events over the past few days have made it clear that we could not go forward as planned.
On Tuesday-Wednesday, March 10-11, 2020, the Biodiversity Funders Group (BFG) will host a conference on terrestrial and freshwater biodiversity conservation at the Pew Charitable Trusts, 901 ‘E’ Street in Washington, DC. The briefing will convene at 8:00 am on March 10 and conclude by 4:00 pm on March 11.
The BFG conference will assist grantmakers to examine the state of various federal land and water policy and management issues in light of next November’s election. Building on this federal perspective, the conference will dive more deeply into specific federal legislation, discuss grantmaking strategies in a climate-challenged world, and investigate partnering with constituencies outside the traditional environmental community.
