Land Use and Natural Resources Training Goes “Remote”

COVID-19 has changed business as usual, including how we deliver education. Our Land Use and Natural Resources classes have long been a go-to resource for the professional development of the region’s land use planners, environmental scientists, consultants, lawyers and more. But faced with sudden shutdowns, we, like everyone else, had to quickly adapt—moving our face-to-face instruction to remote learning.
