filling gaps in the blueprint
Filling gaps in the blueprint

Mission: Create a shared blueprint for landscape conservation actions that sustain natural and cultural resources

filling gaps in the blueprint1
Filling gaps in the blueprint

Mission: Create a shared blueprint for landscape conservation actions that sustain natural and cultural resources

Blueprint: An interactive, living plan that describes the places and actions needed to meet the SALCC’s conservation targets in the face of future change

2012 process
2012 process
  • Phase 1: Science assessment
    • What’s already available that covers entire cooperative?
    • What are the immediately limiting gaps?

  • Phase 2: Filling the gaps
    • What are the most important limiting gaps for this year?
    • Which projects can best fill those gaps?
what s already available that covers entire cooperative
What’s already available that covers entire cooperative?

JV/fish partnership priorities, Recovery plans, SWAPs, etc.

Urban growth models, Southern forest futures…

OCS models…

Connectivity models…

VDDT models, NBCI cons planning tool

what are the immediately limiting gaps
What are the immediately limiting gaps?

Building on other efforts to set SALCC indicators and measureable targets

Impact of smart growth practices…

Sensitivity analysis on planning models…

Integration of High/low marsh mapping

Impact of hydrologic restoration

definitions
Definitions

Priority: Desired conservation outcome that is difficult to measure (e.g., Ecological Integrity of rivers and streams)

Indicator: A way to measure a priority (e.g., Miles of fishable and swimmable streams)

Target: A numeric goal for an indicator (e.g., Maintain total miles of fishable and swimmable streams)

some examples
Some examples

Integrity of open pine systems (priority) - Brown-headed Nuthatch (indicator) - Increase coastal plain population by 50% (target)

Integrity of estuarine and marine systems (priority) - Sea grasses collectively (indicator) - Double the area of sea grasses (target)

Science assessment: 2012 timeline

3/8: SALCC science assessment complete

3/8 - 3/27: Assessment review (partnership committee, steering committee, consulting team, surrounding LCCs)

4/3 - 4/14: Revised assessment review (web community)

lessons learned for next year
Lessons learned for next year

Need more detail

More opportunities for involvement

phase 2 filling the gaps
Phase 2: Filling the gaps
  • What are the most important immediately limiting gaps for this year?
  • Which projects can best fill those gaps?
what are the most immediately limiting gaps for this year
What are the most immediately limiting gaps for this year?

Mid-April: Science gap ranking (partnership committee and additional folks if recommended by consulting team)

Mid/late April: Draft RFP and ranked gaps to steering committee

Mid/late April: Draft RFP and ranked gaps to surrounding LCCs (opportunities for partnering on process)

what are the most immediately limiting gaps for this year1
What are the most immediately limiting gaps for this year?

Top 12 gaps identified

All were in the top 8 for multiple partnerships

gaps for 2012 rfp
Gaps for 2012 RFP

Synthesis and integration of mapping of high and low marsh

Locations of small dams and obstructions on rivers and streams

Effects of uncertainty in SALCC future landscape models on ecologic response models

Synthesis of mapping of estuarine and marine habitats

gaps for 2012 rfp1
Gaps for 2012 RFP

Future changes in major pathways for species invasions

Predictive model of the impact of hydrologic restoration on natural, cultural, and socioeconomic resources

Improve SALCC SLEUTH urban growth model to predict the impact of smart growth practices on suburban/exurban development

methods for other immediately limiting gaps
Methods for other immediately limiting gaps
  • Project support from USGS
    • Improved range shift models for all taxa (except landbirds)
  • For Climate Science Center
    • Incorporation of vegetation range shifts and agricultural change into future landcover predictions
    • Predictions of future changes in non-forest agriculture (i.e., crop and pasture)
  • For SALCC Natural Resource Indicators team
    • Identify SALCC indicators and measurable targets for those indicators while building on existing planning efforts and measureable targets
which projects can best fill those gaps
Which projects can best fill those gaps?

5/4: Approved RFP released

5/23: 1 page statements of interest due

Statement of interest review (partnership committee and additional subject experts recommended by consulting team and steering committee)

which projects can best fill those gaps1
Which projects can best fill those gaps?

Full proposal review (partnership committee and additional subject experts recommended by consulting team and steering committee)

Final check in with surrounding LCCs

Project recommendations to Steering Committee

Final review and recommendation from Steering Committee

lessons learned
Lessons learned

More time needed

Start with trying to fill gaps through specific partners and use SALCC RFP to fill what’s missing?
