Rogers Serves as Reviewer for TPL Report on Land Conservation in NH

July 9th, 2014 by June

Shannon Rogers, Assistant Professor and Ecological Economist in the Center for the Environment, recently served as a technical reviewer of a new report by the Trust for Public Land (TPL) about land conservation in New Hampshire. According to TPL, the report, New Hampshire’s Return on Investment in Land Conservation, quantitatively demonstrates that state investment in land conservation has measurable economic value. Conserved lands provide natural goods and services such as water quality protection, wildlife habitat and air pollution removal – all important to New Hampshire’s strong economy and jobs. For every $1 invested in land conservation by New Hampshire returns $11 in natural goods and services

In TPL’s announcement about the report, Shannon noted that, “Studies like The Trust for Public Land’s help to shine a light on the ‘hidden’ value our natural environment provides through goods and services we might take for granted otherwise. It also helps us identify and prioritize conservation efforts.”
