An Online Working Group for Exploring The Role of Participation in Ecosystem Services Planning
Welcome to the "Participation in Ecosystem Services" group on the Ecosystem Commons. This group builds off the efforts of a working group at the 2012 Ecosystem Services Partnership conference in Portland, Oregon.
