This book is jam packed with facts and information regarding ecology, laws, rules, regulations, and financial incentives for private landowners. It shows the importance of proactive voluntary conservation for preserving natural resources and saving/protecting endangered species. Baier offers numerous photos, case studies, tools, programs and creative conservation solutions for private American landowners, including how to receive assistance for designing, implementing, and paying for conservation through grants, partnership programs, habitat programs, government agencies, and private concerns. We hear from the Department of Agriculture, Fish and Wildlife, Bureau of Land Management, and Forestry, wetlands and grasslands scientists, as well as Land Trusts, private individuals, and State Agencies for every state in the U.S. The book is a roadmap for land owners or developers seeking ways to have a net gain while being proactive in protecting the environment.
