The Land Use Campaign runs FREE open space preservation workshops across the Twin Cities metropolitan area. These workshops are 2-4 hours in duration and can be designed to meet the needs of any local community, open space organization or citizens group in the seven-county area.

Workshops include:
  • Suburban Sprawl - how development patterns affect your community
  • Environmental Review - how environmental assessments work in Minnesota
  • Working with local/metro media outlets - how to make yourself heard
  • Working with elected officials - how to make the most of your representation
  • Land Conservation Tools - what resources are available to help preserve open space
  • Planning & Zoning 101 - how your community development process works
  • Community Organizing - how to build effective community organizations
"Thanks for doing this Land Use Workshop. I feel like a much more informed resident — all those planning concepts were so foreign to me. Now the things I read in the community newspaper will make more sense, and I feel like I'll be better able to act." - Paula, Savage, MN
