What’s a Natural Resource Inventory?

As you might recall from earlier in the module, an NRI collects and produces scientifically credible information on the status, condition, and trends of land, soil, water, and related resources for the purpose of protecting, restoring, and enhancing such resources.

 

An NRI supports community education, identifies conservation priorities, and is the foundation for environmental proposals as well as more detailed studies such as wildlife habitat assessments.
