Geospatial Mapping Tools and Techniques for Tribal Wetland Programs

Virtual

As GIS technology advances, geospatial tools have become more useful and accessible for wetland managers. These tools and techniques can be particularly valuable for monitoring and assessment applications, including data collection, analysis, modelling, and visualization for education and outreach. The results of these efforts may be utilized for other EPA core elements, such as prioritizing

Many of the activities undertaken by tribal wetland programs require the preparation and approval of a Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP). A QAPP is a project-specific plan that lays out the type and quality of environmental data to be collected, including the quality assurance and quality control measures that will be used to ensure data

Functional Wetland Loss in the American West: How Water Scarcity is Reshaping Wetland Ecosystems Webinar

Online

PRESENTER Patrick Donnelly, Intermountain West Joint Venture and the US Fish and Wildlife Service Migratory Bird Program ABSTRACT  Climate change is driving inequity in wetland loss through functional declines. An improved understanding of these trends provides important insight for wetland managers and adaptive strategies needed to offset accelerating losses. This presentation will discuss recent findings from

Functional Wetland Loss in the American West: How Water Scarcity is Reshaping Wetland Ecosystems

Virtual

Climate change is driving inequity in wetland loss through functional declines. An improved understanding of these trends provides important insight for wetland managers and adaptive strategies needed to offset accelerating losses. This presentation will discuss recent findings from a pilot study examining disproportionate impacts on semi-permanent wetlands and migratory waterbirds in Oregon and California. Results
