A few things first off:
The Nature Conservancy of Oregon has a map case and a wood drafting table they would like to donate to a worthy land trust. Only caveat is that the land trust would need to figure out how to get it out of TNC’s building in Portland and to their location. Here are the specs, along with some photos just below. Let Martha Thompson know if you are interested.

Also, the Land Trust Alliance recently made public their revised Standards and Practices (S&Ps). Many hours and public comment went into updating these foundational documents, and it is great to have them revised to reflect the ongoing evolution, professionalization and challenges of land trusts.
