Urban Environments: Conservation Practices in Developed Areas

January 27, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

This webinar will delve into a few of the unique aspects to consider when applying conservation practices in highly developed urban environments. Options are readily available for the traditional application of conservation practices on rural lands and in growing communities; however, these practices do not always translate well in a complex, highly developed and evolving urban environment. Some of these challenges will be discussed, along with opportunities and unique considerations to adapt/modify conservation practices to improve the sustainability of our cities. Expanding urban landscapes, a growing population, continued pressure on existing natural resources, and shifting priorities of urban land use, bring forward an opportunity to collaboratively think about, and discuss, the different ways to approach conservation practices so that they become a regular part of the daily urban experience.
