Harmonizing Conservation and the Power of Partnerships

Upon hearing Nate Hylla, the CEO of Kanati speak at a conference in Iowa, the Executive Director of the Kansas Association of Conservation Districts (KACD) asked him to be the Keynote speaker at KACD’s 78th Annual Convention.

Mr. Hyllas keynote speech was titled, “Harmonizing Conservation and the Power of Partnerships.” This speech was centralized around practical insights and actionable strategies to drive successful conservation efforts in the Midwest.

Key concepts shed light on:

  • How to build strong relationships with landowners.
  • Elevate customer service in conservation.
  • An understanding of the foundation of conservation planning.
  • How to utilize and strengthen the power of partnerships.

The speech shared the same core values Kanati sustains as a company. Mr. Hylla demonstrated them in his speech to the state of Kansas by underlining the intrinsic value of creating interpersonal relationships with clients and how to recognize their social, economic, and environmental factors to better serve them.

Another point Mr. Hylla wished to share was the impact a private company can have on conservation. He communicated that Kanati can add capacity to conservation by being full-service, meaning Kanati can begin with the initial planning process of conservation and work with the client until the final tree is being planted. This could also be demonstrated with the consulting, contracting, and educational elements of Kanati.

By staying true and speaking about these key concepts at events, Mr. Hylla can continue to share the passion behind Kanati with new audiences. This helps achieve Kanati’s overall goal of putting more conservation on the ground sooner and helps to share with others what we are doing and why we are doing it.

Are you ready to make an impact that will last for generations?
