This group builds off the efforts of a working group at the 2012 Ecosystem Services Partnership conference in Portland, Oregon. At the end of the working group, many participants expressed an interest in keeping the dialog going. This Ecosystem Commons group provides a forum for participants to share resources, pose questions to the group, and include other colleagues that were unable to partipate at the ESP conference (or many other uses that you see appropriate).</p> <p><a href="http://ecosystemcommons.org/group/participation-ecosystem-services" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Research Policy Development/Analysis Communication/Education Thu, 16 Aug 2012 17:33:51 +0000 Drew Bennett 2319 at http://ecosystemcommons.org Ecosystem Services, Land Use and Natural Infrastructure http://ecosystemcommons.org/group/ecosystem-services-land-use-and-natural-infrastructure <div class="form-item"> <label>Description: </label> A group for discussing how to address ecosystem services in local land use and infrastructure plans. </div> <p>The purpose of this group is to investigate the challenges and opportunities associated with conserving ecosystem services within the context of Oregon&#39;s land use and infrastructure planning.
