A Publication of the University of Tennessee
A partnership of the Nature Conservancy and other organizations this website is a place where people doing conservation can share their experiences in “workspaces” for their projects.
This bulletin focuses on lead- and arsenic-contaminated soils, based on the premise that reducing exposure to soil lead and arsenic, regardless of their concentrations, will help protect human health.
The golf course "Green Toolbox" will identify multiple environmental benefits that can be achieved through best management practices (BMPs). The project is funded by a PA Department of Environmental Protection Growing Greener grant.
This web page shows how photography and GPS technology were used to document and study changes in the biodiversity of the Puget Sound area. Protocols used as well as results are shown.
McCoy-Linn Dam was removed from Spring Creek, Centre County in 2007 through an extensive private and public partnership that included ClearWater Conservancy, PA Fish and Boat Commission, and American Rivers among many others.
Has a downloadable publication: Stewardship Handbook for Natural Lands in Southeastern Pennsylvania and case studies and resources as well as a description of planning and stewardship services offered by the Center.
In June 2007 the Pennsylvania Environmental Council released its Climate Change Roadmap for Pennsylvania. The Roadmap presents a series of policy and action item recommendations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania Energy Impacts Assessment seeks answers to the impacts of energy development on our natural resources so that conservationists can work more effectively with energy companies and government agencies to avoid, minimize or mitigate habitat impacts in the future.
This website serves the purpose of helping homeowners find ways to reduce stormwater either by management installations or by adopting habits that reduce stormwater runoff and/or reduce the pollution contained wherein.
The Stewardship Handbook is a compilation of the knowledge gained from the organization’s four decades of experience managing its 20,000-acre network of nature preserves in the region. The 220-page book serves as a resource for professional land managers and planners as well as to homeowners seeking to adopt a greener approach to caring for their properties.
In the present study, prioritization of Karso watershed of Hazaribagh, Jharkhand State, India was carried out on the basis of average sediment yield data estimated from Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE). Remote sensing (RS) technology provides the vital spatial and temporal information on some of these parameters. A recent and emerging technology represented by Geographic Information System (GIS) was used as the tool to generate, manipulate and spatially organize disparate data for sediment yield modeling. Thus, the Arc Info GIS and RS (ERDAS Imagine 8.4) provided spatial input data to the model, while the USLE was used to predict the spatial distribution of the sediment yield on grid basis.
This book describes reconciliation ecology, “the science of inventing, establishing, and maintaining new habitats to conserve species diversity in places where people live, work, and play.” Available at retail book websites.
