Description: As populations and urbanization expand in the Southern United States, human influences on forests and other natural areas are increasing. As a result, natural resource professionals are faced with complex challenges, such as managing smaller forest parcels for multiple benefits, and wildfire prevention and management in the wildland-urban interface (areas where urban development and vegetation intermingle), but often do not possess the skills or tools to meet these new challenges. The Changing Roles Professional Development Program, developed by the U.S. Forest Service-lnterface South, the University of Florida, and the Southern Group of State Foresters, provides state and federal natural resource agencies and other organizations in the southern United States and nationwide a set of resources to address these new challenges.
