Description

A first stop Internet-based, storage, planning and communication system for professional and private users to manage lands, wildlife and people is branded “LandHelp” (www.LandHelp.info. LandHelp contains 31 broad categories of information which then link to approximately 3,000 more excellent resources that have been developed by other professionals or which have been placed in LandHelp via PDF files. Major topics include but are not limited to planning, water, forests, fire, range, fish and wildlife, livestock, rural community living, pests, emergencies, health and safety, recreation, tourism and value added enterprises, financial aid and programs, community assessment and management, education, green infrastructure and sustainability, and most recently leadership and “next child in the woods.” This “first-stop-resource” for understanding and managing land, wildlife and people has been used about 200,000 times in the past year without promotion by the university except through personal communications. LandHelp can be used by faculty, students, professionals, and all persons with access to the Internet; it encourages people to help themselves to information and to practice conservation and simplifies communications. The Internet is the most convenient, uniform and accessible place to house, edit and to share important information. However, persons also need a helping hand to put information into action through work by our agencies and organizations. The next step for LandHelp is to get natural resources agencies, organizations and individuals around the country to store information therein and to communicate with their publics through the shared website. LandHelp could become the common Internet voice for all Natural Resources agencies and organizations.
