Bruce participated in the National Agricultural Landscapes Forum sponsored by American Farmland Trust, Farm Foundation and Natural Resources Conservation Service. The forum was the culmination of six regional meetings across the country and provided the opportunity for discussion about how to improve agricultural conservation policies and outcomes in the context of tight budgets, the need for greater governmental efficiency, competing interests, rapid technological change and private sector innovations. As a panel participant in the discussion about jurisdictional boundaries and their impact on conservation, Knight offered an overview of how both geographic and self-imposed boundaries constrain conservation innovation. As a believer that all conservation is local, Knight challenged the group to think about watersheds as being the most relevant boundary and how county and state line boundaries have left us with more conservation overhead and infrastructure than is affordable to meet today’s conservation needs.
