ES-6030: Land Use and Protection Techniques For Resource Managers

Whether your professional goal is to work for a land trust, a planning agency or working within an environmental consulting firm, or even for an NGO such as The Nature Conservancy or Trust For Public Lands this course provides the necessary foundation of theory and skills on how to effectively approach land preservation, conservation, restoration or mitigation of the impacts of human development to natural ecosystems and the environment. This course builds an understanding of the union of the landscape attributes of geology, soils, hydrology and the location of distinct natural communities in order to inform decisions about appropriate land use and natural resource management policies to implement in specific locations. As part of this course, students will become familiar with, and receive specific emphasis on planning techniques that avoid and mitigate impacts to the natural environment from land development decisions. The course will necessarily take into account projected impacts to the landscape exacerbated by a changing climate.
