On June 17, 2009, the Wind Visual project held “Scenic Considerations and Wind Energy in Wyoming.”  This full-day workshop focused on the scenic impacts of rapid wind turbine development that residents in and near Laramie Wyoming are facing.  Through presentations, discussions, photographic exercises, interactive polls, and a bus tour of wind turbine sites, participants in the workshop shared their desires for the future of wind development in their community.

The workshop was held in partnership with Scenic America, the University of Wyoming Ruckelshaus Institute for Environmental and Natural Resources, and the Conservation Districts in Medicine Bow, Laramie River, and Saratoga-Encampment-Rawlins.

The Michigan Wind Energy Landscape Symposium was held in Manistee, Michigan, on July 6, 2011, and involved 21 participants from six Manistee and Benzie County townships.

In addition to being one phase of the Understanding Wind Initiative, the Symposium is part of a research project funded through a grant from the National Science Foundation to Dr. Roopali Phadke at Macalester College.  This broader project aims to better understand the role of public deliberation in the siting of wind energy projects across the nation.  Two other similar symposia will be scheduled over the next year in other states.
