Landscape Conversation and sustainability

Conservation and sound stewardship depend on an integrated, landscape-scale perspective to drive appropriate policy. No longer can public lands management proceed in a piecewise manner, with different states, communities, and public agencies acting independently, limiting their focus to particular resources or jurisdictional boundaries. Water allocation, fire management, and wide-ranging fish and wildlife species demand that people work together, across political and geographic boundaries, to ensure that the West’s iconic landscapes and invaluable resources are protected and wisely managed, that communities prosper, and that biological diversity flourishes. To this end, our group identified three key issues that must be addressed immediately if landowners and public land managers effectively issues that will determine the success of future efforts to safeguard Western landscapes. Sustainable landscaping encompasses a variety of practices that have developed in response to environmental issues. These practices are used in every phase of landscaping, including design, construction, implementation and management of residential and commercial landscapes.
