Setting Priorities for People and Landscapes
Aired on: Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Whether the goal is protecting land for wildlife habitat, working lands, recreation areas, or watersheds, how can you evaluate which land is most important to conserve, protect or restore? How are demographic changes, market forces, and a changing climate, among other drivers, pushing us to do more than commit “random acts of conservation”? Learn about a variety of techniques and tools that are effectively being used to move beyond business as usual to set priorities for land and water conservation while attending to community (and regional) planning needs.
