Natural resources and the economy: hand in hand

Economics and the natural resources go hand in hand in the Southern Appalachians, where we have come to depend on abundant clean water, productive forests, biodiversity, and scenic beauty to sustain a wide range of businesses and industries--from timber and farming to raft guiding and hotel management--as well as a distinct sense of place and quality of life which attracts more and more people to the area. With increased population--and the development that follows it--comes the responsibility to make sure that economic growth does not compromise the resources it relies on.

The 17th Annual SAMAB Conference will provide a unique opportunity to learn about this relationship between natural resources and the economy in the Southern Appalachians. Held November 2830, 2006, at the Holiday Inn SunSpree Resort in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, the conference will highlight what a wide range of constituencies--citizens; businesses; local, state, tribal, and Federal leaders; resource managers; scientists; and educators--are doing to strengthen the link between good stewardship of the land and a strong economy.

Topics for presentations: bio-fuels, development, invasive exotics, water, and breaking research on Southern Appalachia's natural resources and economy.

Deadline for submission is September 15, 2006.
