April 23, 2021 – -Gov. Newsom’s Executive Order to establish a state goal to conserve at least 30% of California’s land and coastal waters by 2030 will be the subject of several virtual workshops to be held in April and May.

The order calls for the launch of the California Biodiversity Collaborative and elevates the role of natural and working lands as a pillar of California’s climate change strategy. The workshops will look at how to combat biodiversity and climate change in California using nature-based solutions.

Farmers are encouraged to participate in the virtual sessions sponsored by the CA Natural Resources Agency. A complete listing of the workshops can be found at the Nature-Based Solutions webpage https://resources.ca.gov/Initiatives/Expanding-Nature-Based-Solutions
