The Ranchlands Podcast #23

Nancy Fishbein

This is a special episode featuring a live conversation and Q&A with Nancy Fishbein, who serves as Director of Resilient Lands for the Colorado Chapter of The Nature Conservancy. This was recorded as part of Ed's 2022 Zapata Ranch workshop, also known as the Strenuous Life Retreat. Ed originally released this conversation as an episode of his other podcast, Mountain & Prairie, but we felt that it was also a perfect fit for the Ranchlands Podcast, so we’re happy to share it with you here.
