Kevin is currently conducting research on the willingness-to-pay (WTP) for conservation of native Palouse Prairie in northern Idaho and Eastern Washington. The Palouse Prairie is a critically endangered ecosystem with less than 1% of the original prairie remaining. . Most remnants are less than 2 ha and have a high perimeter-area ratio. They are disproportionately found on rocky and shallow soils and predominantly in a few large clusters near rivers and rocky buttes not suitable for agricultural use, and almost all of the remnants are located on private land.
