PA Highlands Coalition to Host Return on Environment Webinar

The PA Highlands Coalition will be hosting a webinar titled “What is nature worth? Return on environment studies and the economic value of the outdoors” on Monday, December 10th at 10am. 

How do we ensure that the value of nature is included in local planning decisions? Open space and natural resources support the municipal budget and contribute to the local economy, but these benefits are often overlooked when negotiating with landowners, policymakers, and the public. Join John Rogers, President of Keystone Conservation Trust, and Jeanne Barrett Ortiz, Program Manager at Audubon PA to discuss their groundbreaking Return on Environment studies in the PA Highlands region. This webinar will discuss the findings of the studies, as well as the ways in which this data can be incorporated into decision-making and marketing strategies.
