Presented by Emily Wilson and Chet Arnold, UConn CLEAR
Eligible for 1 CM credit.
Local land trusts and conservation commissions are major players in land conservation in Connecticut, yet few have direct access to technical resources that can help them in their task of permanently protecting open space. In many cases, web-based information and tools created by the UConn Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) can help. This presentation will use live online demonstration of these tools to show how they can be used to help make the case for, analyze and prioritize open space. The “tour” will include examples using the Connecticut’s Changing Landscape website, online Community Resource Inventory, CT-ECO online mapping site, and GoogleEarth (which CLEAR, alas, did not create).
