USGS social science will figure prominently in activities of the Pathways to Success 2008 Conference, sponsored in part by the USGS and aimed at integrating human dimensions and natural resource management. Set for Sept. 28-Oct. 2 in Estes Park, Colo., the conference and training program will address the myriad issues that arise as people and wildlife struggle to coexist in a sustainable and healthy manner. Together, FORT social scientists Lynne Koontz, Jessica Montag, Natalie Sexton, and Earlene Swann and two student contractors (Holly Stinchfield and Asuka Ishizaki of Colorado State University) are leading/participating on a panel about applying social and economic data to land management planning; conducting a training session on identifying human dimensions information needs and incorporating such information into agency planning; and presenting several papers and a poster.
