What's the Next Big Conservation Ask? Help FHBP Figure That Out! May 2, 2023

Dear Pamela,

You and Santiago Creek Greenway Alliance are great supporters of the local and regional conservation efforts. Right now, the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) is considering NEW policies. We could use your support to figure out what to ask for in the plan!

SCAG is gearing up for another planning process, and FHBP is positioned to solicit conservation-focused feedback. Connect SoCal is the new planning effort and its strategies affect how everyone in Southern California lives, works, and plays. We hope you’ll participate again!

In short, FHBP was awarded a SCAG Community Partner grant to increase awareness about Connect SoCal. Our goal is to ensure conservation policies are embedded into the plan. But, we need your help to do this! In this outreach role, we can directly solicit feedback from community groups on policies they believe SCAG needs to consider.

Questions you may consider are:

1. What conservation and open space goals need to be addressed?

2. What climate resilience goals need to be considered?

3. What's the next big conservation ask for SCAG?

4. What communities in the region need the most housing, parkland, and/or transportation support?

To this end, we invite you to a conservation-focused virtual workshop on May 2nd at 11 AM. You’ll learn about the next SCAG planning phase and how to get your feedback heard.

Let’s align our interests and make some changes happen. You can start on this feedback by completing this survey.

You can register online for this Zoom event. Please feel free to share this with anyone you think might be interested in guiding regional conservation policies. A flyer is attached with more details.

Hope to see you there.
