Data Output - Product or Deliverables
1Prioritized list of meadows
Deliverable TypeDatasets / Database
DescriptionGIS analysis of meadows will identify priorities for restoration based on water supply (from incision and yield estimates) and capacity to buffer changes in snowpack (from predicted snowpack changes).

6Meadow Restoration Training
Deliverable TypeTraining / Outreach / Workshop
DescriptionRestoration training (funded by NFWF, using materials from this project) was developed in partnership with USFS. Training was conducted on May 26-27, 2016 for 20 land managers on all aspects of meadow restoration, including: design, permitting, partnerships, fundraising, implementation, monitoring. Water supply monitoring methods and results developed with LCC funding were of interest to many. Training included on-the-ground pairing with mentors in the field and will establish relationships between land managers with limited experience and experts in meadow restoration. Included a post-workshop field component with students shadowed by mentors. Objective is to get on-the-ground projects going.
