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:
