Biography

Bill Stanley is the state director for The Nature Conservancy in Ohio, where he sets strategy and leads a team that protects lands and waters, helps to provide food and water sustainably, connects people and nature, builds healthy cities and works to address climate change.

He believes that it is not only possible to have thriving economies, rich cultural opportunities and preserved natural communities, but that these are mutually supportive. The path to success includes taking more time to listen, and collaborating with businesses, governments and communities. 

Previously at the Conservancy, Bill was the assistant state director and Agnes S. Andreae director of conservation for 10 years. Prior to that he directed the Global Climate Change Initiative, where he led forest carbon science research in support of projects that help to eliminate carbon pollution, and also designed approaches to reduce the threats posed by sea level rise, weather variability and climate change. He has been with TNC for 20 years.  Before joining the Conservancy he was as an environmental consultant dealing with toxic chemicals and emergency response, working primarily along the U.S. and Mexico border and with Native Americans.

He is a manager, strategist, forest scientist, climate change specialist and collaborator with strong success managing multi-disciplinary teams in order to solve local and global problems. He is most excited by the tangible results he and his teams have achieved over the last 20 years through conservation in forests, freshwater, and agricultural settings. Much of this work was made possible by the innovative, and sometimes pioneering, approaches that he and his team develop to simultaneously meet the needs of governments, businesses, communities and the environment.

Bill holds a BA in environmental science, with a minor in foreign affairs from The University of Virginia and a forest science (MFS) degree from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.

TNC Urges Committee to Fix Budget Disparities and Protect Ohio's Waters

June 2, 2021

This week the Ohio Senate passed its version of the state’s biennial budget bill. This is the fourth step in the process and puts Ohio closer to a final outline for state expenditures over the next two years. 

The following statement can be attributed in full, or in part, to Bill Stanley, Ohio State Director for The Nature Conservancy:

“Our state is blessed to have abundant water resources, rich farmland, and beautiful public parks and natural areas. Investments in our lands and waters bring immediate benefits to Ohioans and are down payments on a healthier, stronger future for our children and grandchildren.

We are grateful that the Senate retained robust funding for the H2Ohio program for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and reinstated full funding for the Ohio Department of Agriculture; however, we are very disappointed to see the significant reduction in Ohio EPA funding, which was intended to help our most vulnerable rural and urban areas by replacing failing septic systems and lead drinking water service lines. Now is not the time to reduce the assistance desperately needed for these Ohioans.

This budget also includes some bad policy, specifically including a provision related to oil and gas leasing on public lands that says that the state is to promote, develop and produce oil and natural gas on state lands. This language would reduce the transparency from this process affecting our state lands. As our country moves forward to a lower-carbon economy, this would be a step backward for Ohio.

Investing in the long-term health and resiliency of our natural areas is good for wildlife, our physical and mental health, and the economy, producing wide-ranging benefits for all Ohioans. We thank the Senate for their positive investments in natural areas, wetlands, and agricultural management practices. And we strongly urge the House and Senate Conference Committee to address the mistakes in the Senate version by restoring H2Ohio funding for the Ohio EPA and removing the harmful oil and gas leasing provisions.”

Conservation is a Team Sport: With H2Ohio, Everyone Stands to Win

May 17, 2021

I have been involved in conservation, personally and professionally, for more than 30 years. In that time, I’ve learned that long-term conservation success takes three things: innovative thinking, funding, and, above all, collaboration. It’s a lot like the African proverb, ‘If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.’ Whether you are managing a nature preserve, building a recreational trail for people to enjoy, or embarking on a multi-year restoration project, conservation takes teamwork.

The H2Ohio Program is ground-breaking in the way that it recognizes and supports the variety of things that need to be done, and the many different team members needed, to protect Ohio’s waters. In less than two years since its creation, this program has received strong bipartisan support and is showing impressive results, including:

  • 40 wetland projects underway or in development that will filter polluted runoff from an estimated 90,000 acres of land. That equates to an area the size of more than 68,000 football fields benefiting from the natural filtration power of wetlands, one of the most effective and cost-efficient long-term solutions to reducing excess phosphorus and nitrogen in our waterways. Wetlands also provide critical habitat and recreational opportunities.
  • 1.1 million acres of agricultural lands are enrolled in the H2Ohio program. Management plans are being developed for these lands that utilize science-based best practices for applying fertilizer to fields. These acres account for nearly 44% of the croplands in the Maumee River watershed, which is the largest contributor of runoff that drives harmful algae blooms in the Western Lake Erie Basin.
  • 180 home sewage treatment systems have been repaired or replaced and $1.25 million will support lead service line replacements in Ohio childcare centers, creating more equitable access to clean, safe drinking water. 

In February, Governor DeWine proposed $240 million for the H2Ohio Program in the 2022-2023 biennial budget bill. We applauded this commitment to Ohio’s water quality. However, in the budget recently passed by the House, Ohio EPA’s allocation was slashed by $72 million and Ohio Department of Agriculture funding was reduced by $20 million. The Senate should reverse these cuts and maintain allocations proposed by the Governor in the budget for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

Together, these three agencies are responsible for identifying and funding projects that will lead to better water quality for all Ohioans. Delivering on that promise is not possible if we are unwilling to sustain the investments in their shared success throughout the state.

While we can see the restoration of wetlands and some of H2Ohio’s other results right away, others will be slower. Improving water quality in Lake Erie and across Ohio is a billion-dollar, multi-year problem that requires forward-looking and enduring solutions at a variety of scales. It also requires monitoring and accountability. We appreciate the Governor’s commitment to assessing the program and sharing results regularly. If goals are not met, TNC agrees with others that some additional, practical, regulatory measures may be needed.

But right now H2Ohio is serving up pathways for businesses, environmental groups, and a variety of state agencies to work together and adopt long-lasting solutions that can lead to widespread, systemic change. We believe that this kind of radical and sustained collaboration will make a difference. H2Ohio is just getting started. Tell your state Senator to restore funding levels first proposed by Governor DeWine—it’s a winning formula that puts the people of Ohio first.
