Pagination or Media Count:
The Defense Natural Resources Leadership Conference was called to bring together the men and women who are concerned with the stewardship of the 25 million acres of Departmental of Defense land - land rich in wildlife, wetlands, forests, deserts and coastal resources. It allowed those individuals to hear the policies and concerns of their leaders, to share their experiences, to hear from others who face similar challenges, and to renew their commitment to wise management, use, and protection of the natural resources under their care. The conference began with plenary sessions in which leaders from both the public and private sectors addressed the conference on national issues and policies. Major themes evolved from the plenary session stewardship, partnership, and natural resources as a strategic issue. The plenary sessions were followed by concurrent sessions on Interagency Land Use, Forestry and Land Management, and Wetlands and Fish and wildlife. Speakers emphasize that both ecosystems and environmental effects extend beyond installation boundaries, and that close cooperation is needed between agencies and between military trainers and natural resources managers. Numerous issues were discussed and innovative strategies presented for the protection and management of endangered species, wildlife, wetlands, riparian areas, coastal resources, and biodiversity for forestry management for soil stabilization for landscaping and grounds management and for outdoor recreation and other quality of life benefits.
