Upcoming Meetings

posted in: Events | 0

The PNW Conservation Blueprint is hosting a total of six 3-hour meetings in Olympia, WA, Portland, OR, and Newport, OR on August 29, 30, and 31. The goals of the workshop are to:

  • Discuss conservation priorities within the geographic scope of the project, giving meeting attendees an opportunity to discuss their priorities in the context of the landscape-scale initiative.
  • Discuss the key indicators, ecological attributes, and threats that could inform the future conditions of targets (meeting attendees will select which targets they wish to focus on in advance of the workshop—coastal forests, rivers, estuaries, beaches or shore systems, nearshore systems, and wetlands).
  • Discuss ways attendees can work together collaboratively to identify intermediate and long-term actions and outcomes to address key threats to selected targets.
  • Share how the outcomes of the meeting will be used to develop version 1.0 of the PNW Conservation Blueprint, a rapid synthesis of current condition of our conservation targets using readily available data, a rapid overlay of mappable threats, and a synthesis of identified priority areas.
