This document summarizes the September 21–22, 2016, gathering of urban planners and conservation professionals from the South Atlantic region that was held as part of APA's Urban Conservation: Thinking Megaregionally project. It includes:
- findings from interviews with 24 conservationists, planners, engineers, and parks professionals;
- a discussion of our shared missions, issues, and opportunities for collaboration between the planning and conservation fields; and
- a glossary of definitions to help establish a common language to overcome communication barriers between conservation professionals and the planning sector.
