Abstract: Key to land management in the U.S., according to experts at the Council on Environmental Quality, is management of federally owned lands. U.S. needs to protect prime farmland, wetlands, timberlands and other important resources. One way is for the government to provide seed money to develop land-use plans for critical areas and then acquire small critical land parcels to ensure the plan is followed.
