Land Conservation Financing
Written by two of the nation's leading experts on land conservation, the new book Land Conservation Financing provides a comprehensive overview of successful land conservation programs -- how they were created, how they are funded, and what they've accomplished -- along with detailed case studies from across the United States.
Authors Mike McQueen and Ed McMahon present important new information on state-of-the-art conservation financing, showcasing programs in states that have become the nation's leaders in open-space protection. They look at key local land protection efforts by examining model programs in counties across the nation and they examine how hundreds of communities have created hundreds of millions of dollars in funding by developing successful campaigns to win land conservation ballot measures. They also offer case studies and pull together lessons learned as they lay out how to run a successful campaign.
The book concludes with an examination of the emerging concept of green infrastructure -- a strategic approach to conservation that involves planning and managing a network of parks, natural areas, greenways, and working lands that can help support native species, maintain ecological processes, and contribute to the health and quality of life for America's people and its communities.
