What We Do

Delivering tools to scale

The Land Conservation Assistance Network has a series of directories, news services and tools developed specifically for use by the private landowner. The Conservation Tax Center, the Conservation Yellow Pages, and the Conservation Grant and Assistance Programs are searchable by state, zip code, and resource type. We provide access to over 32,500 technical experts, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, legal experts, service providers and conservation funding sources nationwide.

In 2006 LandCAN senior project director, Willard Dyche received an award from the Secretary of Agriculture for developing energy estimator tools for farmers and other landowners. LandCAN has built seven conservation and energy management tools to assist the private landowner in addressing farm and land conservation and climate change issues.

LandCAN’s websites are designed for the entire conservation community including: private owner, professional staff (foresters, biologists, lawyers, appraisers, etc. and conservation service providers including the private businesses serving the rural land, forests and agricultural sectors. With all LandCAN’s projects, the goal is to connect people to conservation by leveling the playing field and providing free access to critical conservation information, tools and services.
