Get actionable intelligence. Make informed decisions. Share great stories.

September 19, 2017 | 10:00 am - 2:00 pm (coffee & refreshments at 9:30 am)


Interest in the use of drones for aerial inspections, evaluations and surveys is expanding rapidly across many fields. Land and water conservation is no exception. Learn how drones have become the latest tool in conserving and stewarding land.

The day will include a complete introduction to drones (and ground-based video recorded by smartphones and action cameras) and an explanation of the advantages that these devices provide for conservation - from very practical applications such as aerial inspections for stewardship and monitoring easements, to creating great stories with video for fundraising, increasing engagement and advocacy. You'll hear real examples of how conservation organizations are incorporating aerial and ground-based video into their conservation efforts.  The day will conclude with hands-on drone flight demonstrations where you'll be able to get up close and see first-hand how unmanned aerial vehicles work.

There will be plenty of time for Q & A and opportunities to speak directly with colleagues in conservation about how they are using drones.

$30 registration fee (includes lunch). Late fee applies to registrations received after September 8th.
