Part of the Wildlands and Woodlands Vision, Stewardship Science is a regional woodland monitoring program that:

  • Offers step-by-step instruction for landowners to examine:
    1. long-term forest changes in protected wildlands and woodlands
    2. the effects of different management or disturbances on forest structure and composition
    3. the response of wildlife species to forest change, management, and different habitat types (methods and guide in prep).
  • Promotes the use of science and data collection to enable more informed management decisions.
  • Provides an online database for participants to enter and store tree data, use graphing and analysis tools, and access other datasets.
