Cooley-Jericho Community Forest Natural Resource Inventory and Stewardship Plan

Almost one thousand acres, four towns and one land trust:  The four town Cooley-Jericho Community Forest is unlike no other.  The community-participatory planning for stewardship and development of the property's scenic, recreation, biodiversity, education, and timber resources has also been unlike no other.  Working with nearly 25 regular stakeholders and citizen scientist, Native Geographic has led efforts to inventory the property and is now finishing the stewardship plan.. 

Strategic Conservation Planning with the Stowe Land Trust

Land Trusts need to be strategic in how and where they invest their limited resources.  Many Trusts develop a strategic plan to focus their resources.  In 2015, Stowe Land Trust contracted with Native Geographic to help develop their strategic plan.  Native Geographic conducted computer analyses to prioritize working forests, farms, wildlife areas, and river corridors for conservation and to better understand how these conservation value can most efficiently be protected.

Baseline Documentation Reports for the Vermont River Conservancy

Land is conserved for many different reasons.  Since 2006, Native Geographic has been providing the Vermont River Conservancy with a number of conservation services, including preparing Baseline Documentation Reports.  These reports are prepared at the end of a conservation project to document exactly what is being conserved and why.  These reports are used guide long-term stewardship and monitoring.

From 2005-2010, Native Geographic led a project to identify, inventory and map areas critical Charlotte's wildlife and natural heritage.    The analysis, resulting map, and underlying data is now utilized to inform land use planning, development, and conservation.  By design, the map and database is accessible via a highly interactive online map.   Native Geographic also worked with the town to develop a protocol for assess wildlife-related impacts in the development review process.
