Webinar: Protecting Wildlife Habitat through Land Use Planning

December 7, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Presenters will draw on two decades of socio-ecological research experience to discuss best practices for protecting wildlife and habitat through conservation and land-use planning. They will share regional studies that demonstrate why such practices are needed, the type and quality of existing protection mechanisms in Northeast land-use codes and ordinances, and factors associated with success or failure to implement conservation design principles. The presenters also will discuss critical areas for future research.

Presenters:Dr. Michale Glennon, Science Director at Paul Smith’s College Adirondack Watershed InstituteDr. Heidi Kretser, Senior Conservation Social Scientist at the Wildlife Conservation Society
