Developing effective land management strategies that minimize inputs and maximize outcomes is a challenge facing many public and private landholders. This workshop presents a variety of tools and procedures designed to assist managers in the decision-making process, with a goal of establishing best management practices appropriate for a host of site conditions. Observe how ArcGIS software is used to establish goals and implement restoration projects; discover how to develop and prioritize invasive species control programs; and learn how to design and install systems that successfully restore and repair eroded streambanks. Morning lectures and a panel discussion are followed by afternoon tours of Mt. Cuba Center's reforestation research, watershed-monitoring practices, and invasive plant management projects. Dress for the weather.
