What does it take to close a deal and acquire the best land for your stormwater management or conservation project? You’re invited to find out during an upcoming webinar titled “Developing a Land Acquisition Strategy.”

Please join us on Thursday, May 28 at 1 p.m. CT / 2 p.m. ET for a webinar hosted by Delta Institute, the Alliance for the Great Lakes and Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant on the recently completed Land Acquisition Strategy (LAS). Registration is required.

The presentation will highlight the contents of the document including a method for prioritizing land for acquisition, modeling green infrastructure performance and ROI using the Tipping Point Planner and L-THIA Tool, and strategies for navigating the land acquisition process. 

The strategy was developed for municipal partners in Michigan City, Indiana to facilitate the acquisition of land for sustainable stormwater management and natural area conservation. Municipalities, land trusts, watershed groups and more may find the strategies and tools described in this webinar and available in the LAS useful for their immediate and long-term land acquisition initiatives.
