Conservation Design and Stewardship Workshop

We are organizing an upcoming Conservation Design and Stewardship Guidelines workshop. 

The goal of the workshop is to generate practical recommendations for how residential design and stewardship guidelines could be enhanced to improve their effectiveness for protecting native wildlife species and habitats on private lands. At the workshop, we will collaboratively generate these recommendations, including model code language and supporting scientific evidence, for a selected set of planning, design, and management processes that influence biological communities. We will compile the resulting recommendations into a report, which will be disseminated to land-use planners, NGOs, and policy makers seeking to modify land-use ordinances or implement development certification programs.
