Description
 
Free electronic download only.  Many urban park departments have adopted alternative land management practices to reduce maintenance costs and provide a more natural setting for park users and inhabitants. Park managers in Austin, College Station, Dallas, and Houston, who have used this approach, describe the agency benefits, environmental effects, park user opportunities, and emerging issues to consider when deciding whether to naturalize park habitats. 3 pp., 2 photos. By Erich R. Lehmann, Jamie Rae Walker, and Scott Shafer
