-- Conduct expert interviews with landowners, other key stakeholders, and decision-makers in the Northern Rockies to develop an active, effective, and diverse working lands conservation constituency.--
-- Identify existing public policies and funding mechanisms (as well as gaps) related to keeping working lands intact through a comprehensive review of working lands economics, policy, and stewardship or conservation incentives; determine new tools or pathways to address identified deficiencies.--
-- Work closely with the RMP communications team to design a targeted communications/storytelling strategy.
