Description:
In 2011, Sublette County Conservation District, The Nature Conservancy, and researchers from the University of Wyoming set out to assess the feasibility of establishing a “payment for ecosystem services” program in the Upper Green River Basin. The study explored: (1) which ecosystem services are highly valued by potential funders; (2) which practices can feasibly be implemented by landowners, and what contract features will most induce them to participate; and (3) what features are necessary to ensure that the relevant regulatory agencies sign off on conservation undertaken through the exchange. This extension bulletin reports findings from the feasibility analysis and highlights several challenges associated with setting up a market-based conservation program.
