Natural Community Survey Techniques


Learn how to prepare, execute, and create a natural plant community survey report for a conservation property. The class will cover how to identify plant communities based on state community classifications and how to determine rarity ranking and quality ranking of natural community types. We will begin by looking at resources for planning and then discuss how to conduct and prepare for field work. Next, we will spend a day in the field mapping plant communities. After this field session, we will meet in the classroom to review how to summarize data and create a professional report of findings. For the field sessions, bring a bag lunch, water, a compass, a clipboard, a camera, and a GPS unit if you have one. This class is geared for professionals, conservation commissioners, and land trust members. Some plant identification knowledge is required.


Wednesdays, August 23, 30, 6:30-8:30 p.m.; Saturday, August 26, 2017, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
