Every farmer, rancher or small businessperson knows that to do a job, you need the right tools. In this well-written book, Lowell Baier lays out the tools that private landowners can use to carry out voluntary conservation on their land to benefit at-risk species. This guide explains how landowners can prepare a conservation plan, sign up for payments under the federal Farm Bill, avoid the pitfalls of the Endangered Species Act and everything in between.
