The USDA Forest Service, Eastern Region has featured the work of CASRI, and the Monongahela National Forest, as a “Model Landscape Scale Project” in the January 2013, Volume 2, Issue 1, Landscape Scale Conservation News. “One of the most exciting things all of the members of CASRI bring to the table (and the woods) is a deep interest in the values and intricacies of high elevation ecosystems.
Combine that with an extensive set of skills covering a wide variety of scientific and land management aspects and the beneficiaries are the high elevation ecosystems themselves,” notes Forest Supervisor Clyde Thompson, “The Forest is proud to be a part of this effort.”
Landscape Scale Conservation in the Eastern Region is a fact sheet produced by the USDA Forest Service, Eastern Region. It describes and defines “landscape scale conservation,” and introduces the Landscape Scale Conservation Team Members.
