RRBC Stakeholder Advisory Group Meeting
February 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
This meeting will provide an introduction to the Stewardship Mapping and Assessment Project, and demonstrate ways land managers, non-profit organizations, local governments and the region can utilize the resulting data, explore the project methodology, and engage local environmental stewards as the TJPDC initiates the project in the region.
The Stewardship Mapping and Assessment Project (STEW-MAP) is a research methodology, community organizing approach, and partnership mapping tool developed by scientists at the USDA Forest Service Northern Research station to answer the question: who takes care of the local environment?
STEW-MAP databases and interactive maps allow land managers, community organizations, non-profits, and the public to see where hundreds of environmental stewardship groups are working in a landscape of interest. This tool can be applied to strengthen capacity, promote engagement with on-the-ground projects, and build more effective partnerships among stakeholders. STEW-MAP data provide a rich complement to biophysical and geographic information on green infrastructure, improving outcomes for a wide range of applications.
The RRBC Stakeholder Advisory Group Meeting provides the opportunity for topic based discussion with applicable stakeholders to discuss projects and solutions related to the watershed through the RRBC’s Bylaws Article 3.8.
