In the third in the series of ALPINE Webinars, Katharine Sims will present research about the economic impacts of land protection in New England, conducted in collaboration with partners at the Harvard Forest and the Highstead Foundation. The project uses data from towns and cities across New England between 1990 and 2015 to understand how new land protection has affected local area employment and housing permits. She will also discuss work in progress seeking to measure disparities in access to nearby open space in New England according to dimensions of social marginalization.

ALPINE has been hosting a series of webinars this fall in lieu, during the COVID pandemic, of an in-person annual meeting. These webinars will feature faculty collaborations with land conservation organizations and current research pertinent to land conservation.
