Greener Prospects is the business name for the professional work of Randall Arendt, who specializes in the field of conservation planning. As practiced at Greener Prospects, conservation planning is the art and science of designing with nature for people.
Services are provided in three principal areas: educational workshops, site planning and design, and ordinance review -- each of which is elaborated upon in other parts of this website. These services are customized for individual clients, and are provided personally by Mr. Arendt, never by a substitute.
Mr. Arendt's work has earned an international reputation for its innovativeness and creative approach to problem-solving in the fields of land-use and land conservation. Throughout his career, from his professional training in Great Britain to his work with countless communities across this country, to his lectures and published articles (both in the US and overseas), Mr. Arendt has always subscribed to Aldo Leopold's view that one should "think at right angles to one's profession".
The practical solutions developed and espoused by Greener Prospects have helped to save thousands of acres of land in numerous communities at no public cost and at no sacrifice to landowners. Moreover, these results have been achieved without depending upon private donations or involving illegal regulatory "takings".
