Changing land use is one of the most important issues facing California. ANR programs and personnel can help decision makers and land owners make land use decisions that benefit agricultural, natural, and human resources. Our focal areas include land use change, water quality and watershed management, habitat conservation, preservation of working landscapes, and managing growth. This workgroup provides ANR resources to interested clientele. We also identify gaps in our existing knowledge and in our extension materials and work to fill these gaps. We increase communication among our various members and collaborators, both within and beyond DANR and UC. Please see our Land use change website.
