Description
The session will discuss identifying conservation values, their major threats and effective and efficient strategies to protect biodiversity. By utilizing field survey and GIS, conservation values (E.g., rare species, pollinators, forest structure and regeneration) and threats (e.g., incisive species, deer overabundance) are identified, mapped and evaluated. In consultation with land owners, realistic strategies are developed to formulate a 10-year stewardship plan that identifies required resources to meet stated conservation objectives.
