  • Baseline documentation involves collecting detailed information depicting the condition and characteristics of the conserved property at the time
  • Cherri – Based on feedback we’ve received from the land trusts and team discussions regarding the mission of the Trust Fund, activities eligible for funding fell into two major categories. We’re proposing that the highest priority management activities must protect the integrity of the conservation easement and/or protect water quality with lower priority for those activities that enhance the conservation values of the easement. Will is now going to discuss some real life examples of management issues and what can be done to resolve these issues.
