Organizational Assessments
Conservation Planning
Scholarly Publications


Open, working farm and ranchland…connected wildlife corridors…intact natural systems…and strong land conservation organizations to help protect them. These are visions that motivate my consulting work. I am a planning consultant with particular expertise in the conservation of open and working land in the west. My services to conservation organizations and agencies include:

  • Conducting guided organizational assessments and helping land trusts become accredited.
  • Preparing strategic land conservation plans. 
  • Writing management plans for open and working landscapes.
  • Facilitating strategic planning processes. 
  • Researching landscape change, particularly as background for local open-space protection initiatives.
  • Consulting on the implementation of greenways and other connected open-space systems.


My open-space book, MetroGreen, examines how open space networks have been implemented in 10 U.S. and Canadian cities.
