We are thrilled to share that CalTrout Associate Director of Policy Analise Rivero was selected by California Natural Resources Agency Secretary Wade Crowfoot to serve on California’s 30x30 Partnership Coordinating Committee. As a member of this committee, Rivero will work to support, coordinate, and empower the many partners across the state working to advance 30x30.
30x30 outlines a commitment to protecting 30 percent of California’s lands and coastal waters by 2030. The initiative was established through Governor Newsom’s Executive Order in 2020. In order to meet this goal, the California Natural Resources Agency developed a series of actions in Pathways to 30x30: Accelerating Conservation of California’s Nature. Rivero has been actively involved in helping to shape this document and advocating for the inclusion of freshwater protections.
The 30x30 Partnership was developed to organize groups and leaders around the actual implementation of the initiative. As a member of the Coordinating Committee, Rivero will help organize and support the 30x30 Partnership through effective communication and coordination among all participating groups. There are hundreds of entities across the state working to achieve 30x30, and the Coordinating Committee will provide support and statewide coordination to those entities.
Rivero is one of 18 leaders selected to serve on the Committee. CalTrout is thrilled by her selection, and we look forward to our organization’s continued partnership with the California Natural Resources Agency in the effort to restore California’s important natural landscapes.
