Ecosystem Management (NR 465) "The Pismo Preserve Ecosystem Management Plan" 

March 2014-June 2014

Ecosystem Management is a complex area of study. There is no boiler plate plan or method when determining what resources need to be protected and maintained, and how that should be done. I worked within a class group to help the Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo draft an ecosystem management plan for their newly acquired property, the Pismo Preserve. To see a digital copy of this project, click the image to the right.
