Ensuring Greater Yellowstone's Future: Choices for Leaders and Citizens available in Hardcover
How can environmental problems be solved when they cross boundaries and involve diverse people? What kind of leadership and institutions will bring success? From experience in the greater Yellowstone region, Susan G. Clark looks at leadership and policy in managing natural resources. She assesses accomplishments toward sustainability over the past forty years.
Focusing on The Greater Yellowstone Coordinating Committee, a federal group of heads of national parks, national forests, and national wildlife refuges, Clark identifies fundamental leadership tasks needed, explains what changes in skill will be required, and makes many practical recommendations for every leader, citizen, and group involved with large-scale conservation anywhere worldwide.
