Webinar: Green River Basin LCD - Mapping riparian vegetation

Event Type: 
GNLCC Webinar
Date and Time: 
Dec 19, 2016 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm MST

 

The Southern Rockies and Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperatives, Conservation Science Partners, and the Northern Arizona University Landscape Conservation Initiative are pleased to announce a webinar series as part of the Green River Basin Landscape Conservation Design (GRB LCD), an effort to coordinate and act across boundaries and jurisdictions to meet mutual goals for agreed-upon conservation targets in the sage-steppe and aquatic/riparian ecosystems of the Green River Basin.

The project analysis area extends across about 48,000 square miles and spans portions of Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming. Now in its second year, the project has included an extensive stakeholder engagement process, including interviews, a needs assessment, and a workshop that took place in April of 2016. The spatial data products shared in these webinars can be useful in their own right, and will feed into a vulnerability analysis being conducted for the project, which will be addressed in a 2017 workshop.

Webinars:

  1. Mapping freshwater integrity: Oct 27, 2016 from 2-3PM MDT - Completed
  2. Sage-steppe resilience mapping: Nov 21, 2016 from 2-3PM MST
  3. Mapping riparian vegetation: Dec 19, 2016 from 2-3PM MST
