The Conservation Fund is hosting its Balancing Nature and Commerce in Rural Communities and Landscapes workshop on May 3 – 5 in Shepherdstown, WV.  During this 3-day course community-based teams will focus on the economics, community character, natural resources, and partnership-building skills necessary for creating sustainable communities.  Teams will identify opportunities to differentiate their communities based upon their unique assets, have the opportunity to hear the latest trends in bringing alternative energy or transportation or sustainable agriculture practices to their rural communities, and develop specific action plans for implementation when they return home.  Applications are due March 14.  For more information and to submit an application, click here.
