The NC Wildlife Resources Commission will be conducting a Green Growth Toolbox Workshop at the Pender County Hampstead Annex.
Hosted by by the Pender County Planning Department.
Date: April 22, 2016
Time: 9 am to 4 pm
Place: Pender County Hampstead Annex, 15060 US Hwy 17 Hampstead, NC 28443
The Toolbox provides information on conservation development incentives and how to remove regulatory barriers to better resource conservation. This type of proactive planning secures benefits for our communities, the future of our wildlife and economy, helps to protect working farms and forests and helps to ensure that development permit requirements are met ahead of time.
The NC Natural Heritage Program (www.ncnhp.org) serves as an information clearinghouse in support of conservation of the rarest and most outstanding elements of natural diversity in the state. These elements of natural diversity include plants and animals which are so rare or the natural communities which are so significant that they merit special consideration as land-use decisions are made.
The Natural Heritage Data Explorer website was created by the North Carolina Natural Heritage Program and NatureServe to improve public access to natural heritage data. Those who complete the NHDE training are eligible for a subscription and account with enhanced data access. https://ncnhde.natureserve.org/
