> As part of this University of Michigan School of Natural Resources and
> Environment-based watershed research project, several ecologically
> sensitive alternatives for rural residential landscape design have been
> developed. To help us understand how these alternatives might be perceived
> by local people, we are conducting a survey.
>
> The survey involves observing slides that are computer simulations of
> these alternative landscape designs. Respondents are asked to fill out a
> questionnaire to tell us what they think of the alternatives. For those
> who want to stay after the conclusion of the 45-minute survey, Professor
> Joan Nassauer will give a 15-minute presentation about the characteristics
> and ecological benefits of the alternative landscape designs and her Joan Nassauer will give a 15-minute presentation about the characteristics
> and ecological benefits of the alternative landscape designs and her
> experiences with examples of these designs that have already been
> implemented.
>
> The survey is part of a larger project at the University of Michigan,
> for which an interdisciplinary team of faculty at the School of Natural
> Resources and Environment is researching how different kinds of land
> use impact the health of the environment. We hope use our investigations
> into alternative land uses, their social and economic acceptability, and
> their ecological impacts to enable citizens and agencies to identify
> approaches to maintain the ecological health of the Huron and Raisin River
> areas.
