Land Trusts Merge Ecological and Economic Goals
(2008-09-15)
(wfcr) - Land Trusts are usually small non-profits working in specific geographical areas--a certain country or town--to try to save land from development. For a long time, a lot of land trusts managed their properties as preserves, allowing nature study and passive recreation, but not much else. Now, many have begun re-evaluating this approach. They've started merging ecological goals with economic ones, as naturalist Laurie Sanders explains on this week's Field Notes. © Copyright 2017, wfcr
