Land Conservation Assistant Network

Amos S. Eno, president and founder of Land Conservation Assistance Network (LandCAN), has been changing the environmental policy and philosophical landscape for 40 years. He has challenged government, the corporate world and environmental leaders to think differently about environmental policy, conservation vs preservation, development and land use.

 

Simultaneous with founding the Land Conservation Assistance Network (LandCAN) in 2000, Amos was executive director of the New England Forestry Foundation where he engineered the two largest privately held land conservation easements in the United States totalling 1.1 million acres, the Pingree Project and the Downeast Project. For 10 years, he was executive director of the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation; he re-organized NFWF into a regionally managed organization to improve services. He has been director of wildlife programs at the National Audubon Society and editor of the Audubon Wildlife Reports. He served as special assistant in the Office of Endangered Species at the Department of the Interior. He served as assistant to Nathaniel P. Reed, Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Fish, Wildlife and Parks, 1974-1976, working on Alaska lands, endangered species and national wildlife refuges. Cleo Layton was his mentor.

Founder of the Resources First Group, a consulting company, Amos’ past clients included Secretary of the Department of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Resources Legacy Fund, Nature Conservancy, New England Forestry Foundation and the Louisiana Secretary of Natural Resources.
