Join us for the first coffee and geo-transparency talk with Breece Robertson – geospatial expert, conservation champion, author, and community planning expert.

We guarantee an informal yet highly interesting talk for your morning, afternoon, or evening coffee (or tea if that’s your kind of cup).

Breece has a lot of exciting stories to tell!

Breece Robertson has more than 20 years of experience leading collaborative and strategic initiatives that leverage geospatial technologies for land, water, equity, and climate issues. She is a master of community-driven GIS approaches for strategic land protection.

Breece currently holds the position of Director of Impact Assessment and Monitoring at One Tree Planted, a global environmental restoration and reforestation organization. She is the author of the book “Protecting the Places We Love: Conservation Strategies for Entrusted Lands and Parks”: https://www.esri.com/en-us/esri-press/browse/protecting-the-places-we-love-conservation-strategies-for-entrusted-lands-and-parks#:~:text=In%20Protecting%20the%20Places%20We,groups%20large%20and%20small%20to.

From 2001 – 2019, Breece led GIS, research and planning teams at The Trust for Public Land that protected 3,000+ places and saved 2+ million acres of land, while serving over 9 million people.

Esri, the world’s leader in geographic information system (GIS) technology, has honored Breece twice for innovation in helping communities meet park and conservation goals. In 2006, she was awarded the Esri Special Achievement in GIS award and in 2012, the “Making a Difference” award.

Breece loves exploring remote Southwest canyons, hiking tall mountains, foraging for mushrooms, snorkelling with marine life, and playing the mandolin. She has two awesome pups and a wonderful partner.

Meet her this November by adding the coffee and geo-transparency talk in your calendar and see you soon!
