Please Describe: SCIENCE
September 12, 2014
Land conservation isn’t all fun and games. Behind every acquisition, integral to every stewardship project, and underneath every park is science. There’s science of all kinds: biology, ecology, ornithology, geology, geomorphology, archeology, dendroecology, and many more ‘ologies. Over the years we’ve talked about science and its role in land conservation a lot at Open Space Council Gatherings, conferences and working groups.
Will you join us for a stroll through the Life Sciences section of the Open Space Council’s library? Here we go:
- Citizen science at the 2014 Open Space Conference
- Stewardship Palooza because there was definitely science there
- Managing Land with Science in hand because it was the whole focus
- Going way back, we talked about the science of grazing in March 2011
