1 year 1998-09-01 - 1999-09-01

Principal Investigator:

Ann Sorensen, CAE, Bob Wagner, AFT Field Office Director, and Susan Jo Gehl (CAE) and Jill Schwartz (FAS)

To strengthen farmland protection programs in Southeastern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois, we: 1) inventoried farmland resources and their associated benefits and values; 2) evaluated existing public (continued in notes)

This analysis evolved into the strategic business plan for AFT’s Upper Midwest Regional Office and led to opening of a new regional office.
