Fayetteville City Council recently approved a "Natural Environment, Ecosystems, and Climate Resilience" planning resolution, authored by council member, Teresa Turk, who also serves on the Fayetteville Environmental Action Committee. The broad resolution aims to map and conserve lands of high ecological value, cultivate rich carbon sinks, establish a conservation easement fund, and improve flood-protective riparian zones along streams and creeks.
