It begins with an online component and concludes with a one day, in-person workshop with lunch provided. Students will review MCM’s purpose, benefits and limitations within the CRP conservation planning process. They’ll also learn to assess quality, quantity, composition and structure of plants and trees in the stand as well as other resource conditions within the broader ecological landscape. Data will be used to develop a MCM conservation plan that meets landowner objectives and creates exceptional wildlife habitat.
