Natural Resources Inventory

Kansas City Metro Area

Vireo worked with the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) to develop a comprehensive inventory and assessment of natural resources throughout the region - a critical first step toward solid environmental planning and conservation at the local level. The inventory provides a systems-based framework of maps and documentation for watershed management, resource conservation and restoration that will be useful to local governments, planners, engineers, developers, ecologists, and citizens to ensure that critical natural areas are conserved as development throughout the area continues.
