The Forest Service has announced the topic of its next webinar in the Planning for Growth and Open Space Conservation series - Session #10: Conservation Planning Tools for Land Use Planners and Natural Resource Professionals.

But how can land use planners expect to stay up-to-date on this dynamic and ever changing field? The program will present findings from several recent surveys on the use of conservation planning tools by local and regional land use planners, as well as guidelines and incentives for conservation design in local development regulations.

  • Sarah Reed, Colorado State University and Wildlife Conservation Society
  • Ryan Scherzinger, American Planning Association
  • Don Lipscomb, Clemson University

They request that all participants register in advance for the webinar.
