Let’s face it. When negotiating land and resource management agreements, multi-party negotiations come with a lot of politics. Each stakeholder is committed to a different priority, be it honoring their organization’s mission, making the most money, saving the most habitat, or winning the best public relations. All too often, a compromise is harder than it sounds.
It needn’t be this way. Interest-Based Negotiation, or integrative bargaining, finds common ground that encompasses everyone’s needs, including those that may not be in the room, such as the land or resource itself.
This 5-day workshop uses interactive exercises and simulations to provide you the tools, techniques, and principles for mastering a successful negotiation.
Set in the Carrizo Plain in spring, we intend for participants to practice these techniques while participating in land stewardship, in situ. Throughout the workshop, we will take time to build connections with actual local stakeholders, as well as the region’s resources, in a way that enables us to effectively communicate the importance of our resource, through data and through arbitration.
This workshop falls under our GO WILD Program.
GO WILD: Get Outside - Walk, Inquire, Learn, Do.

Chimineas Ranch, a 30,000 acre unit of the Carrizo Plains Ecological Reserve, was purchased by the California Department of Fish & Wildlife property on the Carrizo Plain with help from the The Nature Conservancy and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. The property creates a wildlife corridor between the Carrizo Plain National Monument and Los Padres National Forest. Managed by the Chimineas Ranch Foundation, it functions as a center for research, education, and habitat conservation.
