Creating a Natural Resources Inventory
|Webinar: Thursday Jan. 14, 2016, 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
Natural areas including forests, wetlands, and floodplains provide numerous benefits to communities and play a vital role in climate resilience, such as floodwater retention in wetlands and the reduction of heat impacts by urban forests. To develop climate change adaptation strategies and inform local land-use, municipalities need good information on the location and status of natural resources in their community. A natural resources inventory (NRI) provides an essential foundation for comprehensive planning that proactively considers a community’s land and water resources. This month’s Climate Smart Communities webinar will introduce a new guide to the process of creating an NRI, and discuss how your municipality can benefit from having an NRI to inform planning, conserve natural assets, and build resilience.
