Description

See also: Protected Lands Management, Habitat Restoration

With this program, we return to the field to examine the interaction between recreation planning and endangered species conservation.  With human populations concentrated in coastal areas globally, conservation of species dependent on the immediate coast is of vital concern.  California's premier land management agency, its Department of Parks and Recreation, delicately balances resource conservation with providing 'high quality recreational experiences' for the public.  To examine this balance, we will first interview Kriss Neuman, an expert scientist on the snowy plover.  We will also interview Gabe McKenna, a Parks Ranger.
