Developed by the Workgroup on Principles and Practices in Natural Environments

This document elaborates on the 7 key principles identified by work group members, listing the concepts underlying the brief statements. Each principle also has descriptive statements illustrating what the principle should “look like” in practice. There are also descriptions of what it “doesn’t look like” because too often those practices are still being used. While the work group offered much input, no attempt was made to achieve consensus. The Looks Like / Doesn’t Look Like statements are simply examples. Many others could be added. The document may be particularly useful as training material. Lively discussions occur when the principles and concepts are provided and participants draft their own Looks Like / Doesn’t Look Like statements. Please use the following citation when referring to this work.
