Local Governments and Conservation

What is ‘local governments and conservation'?


Local governments (counties, towns, and cities) are the front lines of land use planning; and effective land use planning is the lynch pin of conservation. Local decisions around planning, development, and land use have tremendous power to support ecological conservation.
