Planning for Conservation Delivery Success: Linking Biome-wide Sagebrush Conservation Design to Local Treatment Planning by Leveraging Landscape Restoration Outcomes

Funding Year






Project Description

This project will leverage the power of the Land Treatment Exploration Tool and monitoring data from landscape-scale restoration projects on private and public lands to act as a “one stop shop” for restoration planning. The enhanced tool will provide a resource for local land managers that relates treatment outcomes to landscape, vegetation, climate, and treatment characteristics to adaptively manage and plan for restoration investments to grow and protect vital habitats.
