This course is useful for anyone who will be working to preserve, conserve or manage land-use and water resource decisions. The course content reviews, and allows student to practice,field assessment approaches so as to evaluate potential or actual impacts from human activities, both at the watershed level and for a specific parcel of land. Such procedures range from the formalized ASTM Phase I site assessment procedures to techniques for documenting watershed health and mitigating potential non-point source pollution. Skills to be developed are for anyone entertaining the possibility of working for a land trust, watershed association, a planning agency or a consultancy that focuses on landowner regulatory compliance and liability issues.
