Rethinking Landowner Outreach

Rethinking Landowner Outreach

Effective engagement for better stewardship

Tools for Engaging Landowners Effectively (TELE) works with partner organizations  from all sectors to help them design and implement more effective programming and outreach. TELE can help you convince more landowners to adopt a desired behavior, whether that’s harvesting timber, permanently conserving land, or anything in between. We can help you connect with your audiences on a more personal and meaningful level. Most importantly, TELE tools and techniques can help you leverage your resources to successfully reach and persuade the right audiences to achieve your landscape level goals.

Planning Your Landowner Engagement Strategy to Reach Your Big Goals [2-part webinar]

Tuesday, April 9, 1pm ET & Tuesday, April 16, 1pm ET

This special 2-part webinar will dig deep into a tool for mapping out your landowner engagement strategy, the Ladder of Engagement. Part 1 will provide insight into how to effectively use the Ladder of Engagement by examining cases of how this tool has been used and how to avoid common pitfalls. Afterward, participants will have an opportunity to create a Ladder for their own program and submit it to the TELE Team for review. Part 2 will then dive into the Ladders created by participants and provide tips for incorporating partners, resources, and evaluation to ensure success. (You are welcome to attend one or both sessions.)
