Webinar: Sage steppe resilience mapping in the Green River Basin

Event Type: 
GNLCC Webinar
Date and Time: 
May 26, 2017 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm MDT

 

In partnership with the Southern Rockies and Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperatives, we are pleased to announce several upcoming webinars for the Green River Basin Landscape Conservation Design (GRB LCD). The purpose of these webinars is to share several spatial data products developed by Conservation Science Partner and Northern Arizona University, and to invite feedback and questions on the data products. Two webinars are currently scheduled, one on change agents such as energy development and climate change, and another on sage steppe resilience.
 
Dates and Times 

  • April 19, 2017, 2PM MDT: Mapping change agents in the Green River Basin: land use and energy development
  • May 26, 2017, 2PM MDT: Sage steppe resilience mapping in the Green River Basin

Space is limited, but webinars will be recorded and posted on the project webinar page.

 

Background

These webinars are being conducted as part of the 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 analysis area extends across about 48,000 square miles and spans portions of Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming. The project is now in its second year, and 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 include a second workshop in 2017.
