The Washington Wildlife Habitat Connectivity Working Group, which we are a member of, has launched a series of webinars featuring how partners in the working group are putting the scientific products we've generated to work.
Webinars take place the third Monday of the month at 10 am.
At this webinar, Jason Lowe of the Bureau of Land Management presents, "Considering connectivity in Washington's BLM land management plan revisions."
The Bureau of Land Management owns approximately 500,000 acres in Washington, almost entirely in the highly fragmented, arid landscape of eastern Washington. The choices they make in land management (ranging from recreational use, restoration of habitats, renewable energy development, and grazing) can have a big effect on wildlife from sage grouse to mule deer. This presentation focuses on how the government is addressing connectivity in their land management plan, currently under revision. The presentation will be followed by Q&A session.
After the webinar, learn more about what we do to connect habitat by working with partners to develop the science to inform conservation and management, and translating that science onto the ground.
