Title: Conservation Organizations: What They Do and Why They Do It
Author: Malone, Lindsay
Abstract: Partial Abstract: As development pressures increase throughout the United States, communities have recognized that land conservation is an important tool to manage growth and protect critical land and water resources. Across the country there is increasing recognition that land conservation efforts can help create healthier, more livable, and economically sound communities. And with this recognition the number of land conservation organizations and the acres of land that they protect have been on the rise. To date, conservation organizations in Washington have protected more than 725,000 acres of resource lands including working forests, farmlands, open space, wildlife habitat and other ecologically sensitive areas.
