In this case study, you’ll read through each small group member’s bios and get to know them. Throughout the case study, you’ll learn more about their roles within the group and the obstacles they must overcome throughout their project. They are working together as a new group; they have never met each other but they have unique skills that are needed for a city-funded project.

They are community members tasked with proposing a strategy to protect Arizona’s sacred land and National Forests through conservation implementation. If their proposal is accepted by the state it will begin implementation later next year. They will be compensated for their time, proposal, and overseeing the project (through a logistics perspective). The group will be compensated $50,000 (divided by each participant) and $150,000 if the proposal is accepted. They are allowed to work in addition to completing the project.
