*Researchers involved with the NSF, EPSCoR grant, Managing Idaho's Landscapes in Ecosystem Services (MILES) are working to advance the state of Idaho's capacity to solve complex social‐ecological processes associated with urban growth of mid‐sized cities. By creating new knowledge about relationships between ecosystem services, landscape change, and associated socio-economic systems, the researchers are helping policy makers, stakeholders and the public understand how to better sustainably manage Idaho’s resources.
