Most of the 180+ organizations that have used Lens over the last few years find that they save time and money compared to traditional monitoring approaches. But now, thanks to the efforts of a cohort of land trusts supported by the Land Trust Alliance’s Remote Monitoring Grant Program, we’re able to see just how significant these savings can be—even for smaller organizations.
Since 2021, we’ve been proud to support 20 land trust recipients of these competitive grants. Recently, the Conservation Finance Network published an insightful look on the many benefits that these land trusts have found after getting started with remote monitoring in this in-depth piece.
One of our partners featured in the article, Maryland’s Lower Shore Land Trust, is thriving using Lens. LSLT’s small but mighty team manages over 130 properties annually, and just after their first year using Lens, they calculated a yearly savings from remote monitoring that added up to an incredible 567 hours of staff effort and $20,093 saved!
