The U.S. Department of Agriculture has allocated an estimated $1.2 billion for conservation projects over the next five years. These efforts will significantly benefit from innovative approaches that better engage landowners to adopt best management practices and prioritize high-risk areas. This workshop will highlight successes in developing and utilizing interactive geographic information systems, models and other tools to enhance engagement and inform decision-making in agricultural contexts. The event will feature system demonstrations, case studies and panel discussions. The workshop is open to the public, but advanced registration is required by Feb. 27, 2015.
