- Talk to city/county planners about future projects BEFORE they get to the planning stages
- Start a coalition of friends and volunteers that can take turns attending public hearings and asking questions so the task is not so burdensome.
- Look up FNAI maps. Ask The Nature Conservancy (TNC) which properties they think are critical, and find out why.
- Next go talk to the commissioners about the areas worthy of preservation. Meet with them one at a time in their offices. Bring your coalition to the talk. Show the maps. Give real information. Commissioners are generally grateful for he information as most of them do not have a background in, or knowledge of, ecology and its importance.
