Johnson County Park & Recreation Department Natural Resource Plan

Johnson County, Kansas

Vireo worked with the County to develop a Natural Resource Plan to guide strategic investments in natural areas and parklands. The County manages a little over 10,000 acres of parkland, of which 81% is in natural areas, trails, and water; and 19% is active parkland. An integrated and comprehensive foundation of data, best practices, and effective strategies within the plan aim to help conservation, restoration, and management of natural areas for the benefit of current and future generations of local citizens.
