Data Input - New Collections
1Protected Area Nodes (CPAD+) and associated base data
Deliverable TypeDatasets / Database
DescriptionThe UC team created a core habitats map (CPAD+) based on protected area locations were collated from the California Protected Area Database (CPAD at calands.org). The CPAD was amended to include additonal properties managed by participating stakeholders (Audubon Canyon Ranch, Lake County Land Turst, Land Trust of Napa County, Sonama County AGricultural Preservation Open Sapce District, and Sonoma Land Trust). We dissolved the boundaries between all connected protected areas and excluded properties smaller than 50 acres, resulting in a final selection of 302 polygons (CPAD+). Access provided through Data Basin. Audience: Land and water managers

2Climate Connectivity Benefits
Deliverable TypeDatasets / Database
DescriptionThe UC team will deliver a climate space analysis that quantifies climate benefit between protected areas offered by their adjoining linkages for mean summer maximum temperature (June, July, August) and mean winter minimum temperature (December, January, February). Climate models were generated for recent (1980-2010) and mid-century (2040-2069) using CNRM-CM5 climate scenario (RCP 8.5) (Flint & Flint 2012; Pierce et al. 2015). Access provided through Data Basin. Audience: Land and water managers.

3Terrestrial and Riparian Permeability and Connectivity
Deliverable TypeDatasets / Database
DescriptionThe UC team will deliver permeability assessments and connectivity analyses for terrestrial and riparian connectivity. The terrestrial permeability values were derived using an ecological integrity resistance surface that estimates the degree of human modification based on stressors such as land use, land cover, and presence, use, and distance from roads (Theobald 2013; Dickson et al. 2016).The riparian permeability values were derived using the enduring physiographic features of ruggedness, topography, and landforms in the M2B study area. For the connectivity analyses, the terrestrial and riparian permeability maps were used to generate linkages between protected areas (CPAD+) to show the most cost-effective route between a source and destination protected area. Access provided through Data Basin. Audience: Land and water managers.

2Portfolio reports for priority corridors
Deliverable TypeConservation Plan / Design / Framework
DescriptionLinkage portfolio reports will address priority geographic focus areas, provide metrics for linkage alternatives in terms of connectivity and conservation benefits, and define a road map for moving forward in those areas with local partners. Local partner teams will advise on site-specific adaptation strategies to create final portfolio reports.

5Outreach Materials for Land Owners
Deliverable TypeTraining / Outreach / Workshop
DescriptionThis is a printable, two-sided, trifold brochure created as part of the Mayacamas to Berryessa Connectivity Network (M2B). The purpose of this brochure it so provide a summary of key stewardship and policy messages that emphasize the value of habitat corridors for wildlife and landscape resilience, water security, and scenic value. At a broad level, the recommendations in our outreach brochure include using wildlife friendly fencing, maintaining natural vegetation and habitats in undeveloped areas and along creeks, keeping pets indoors and eliminating wildlife attractants, using best management practices to minimize risks to livestock, and minimizing night lighting and unnecessary noise. The outreach materials contain standardized terminology for partners of the connectivity network to use and customize as needed. These messages may be integrated into print, digital, and in-person engagement of critical individual and institutional partners. By effectively engaging the community of private and public land managers, parcel by parcel, we will build momentum and adoption of an enduring habitat corridor stewardship strategy.
