Print Friendly Version
Project Leader Tracy Hill traveled to Minneapolis, Minnesota on 14 April to attend a meeting of the Missouri River Cooperating for Recovery (CORE) meeting.  The CORE group promotes and facilitates implementation of the US Army Corps of Engineer’s Missouri River Recovery Program.  The CORE team uses adaptive management to make policy decisions to implement the Missouri River Biological Opinion and the Bank Stabilization and Navigation Project Fish and Wildlife Mitigation Project so as to sustain the values of the river for the American public.  The primary focus of the meeting was to review various aspects of adaptive management as it relates to shallow water habitat construction projects and recovery efforts for the piping plover and least tern..  The group also had the distinct privilege of being addressed by Andrew Tyre of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  Dr. Tyre is a renowned expert on adaptive management and had some suggestions for the group.
