The first Heartland Environmental and Resource Economics (HERE) workshop took place September 19-21, 1999, in Ames, Iowa. The purpose was to bring economists working on environmental and resource problems in the Midwest together in an informal setting. The pleasant setting provided an ideal environment for researchers, students, and other professional environmental economists to exchange research ideas, critically assess each other’s work, and to encourage collaborative efforts.
