Ecotourism and Conservation in Morocco
Ltnin Imin'Tlit, Morocco
From March 2004 to May 2006 I served as a Community Forestry Agent with the Moroccan Ministry of Water and Forests and the U.S. Peace Corps with my wife in a small village in the Argan Biosphere Reserve in southwest Morocco. During my time there I worked on a project to document and identify the plants present in the Amsittene Mountian Protected Area. Below are several products from this work and related materials.
An ethnobotanical handbook describing the plants of Amsittene Mountain and their uses that I put together with the help of the Moroccan Minstry of Water and Forests , ENDA Maghreb , the Mens' Association of Imin'tlit, and the people of Imin'tlit.
Presentation given to 2005 Peace Corps Training group on conducting a photo inventory of floral biodiversity in rural areas

Database I developed to organize all the data created by the Tamounte Women's Argan Cooperative . The database was developed for a specific Cooperative but could be easily be used by another. Database is in Microsoft Access format.
