NR2: Caring for Natural Resources—Taking Action in Your Community
This sequel to NR1 helps participants to choose locally appropriate land use planning strategies for conserving natural resources. It uses case studies and exercises to show how taking action can work in real life. The overall goal is to build understanding of what you can do, how to work with different people in your community, how to choose ways to protect natural resources, and how to make it happen.
