Adopting a forward-thinking approach to community and conservation planning, a new project will identify habitat and wildlife species data that can be integrated into community resilience and hazard planning efforts. Input from partners and stakeholders will guide updates to the Community Health and Resource Management (CHARM) tool and Southeast Conservation Blueprint. These efforts will support ongoing and future work related to community training, planning support, and project identification.
This work further contributes to the Conservation, Restoration, and Resilience Planning Cross-Team’s efforts towards a comprehensive Gulf Coast Adaptation and Resilience Plan. The project is being led by Texas Agrilife Extension and is funded by USFWS as part of GOMA’s Gulf Star program. Look for additional project details and workshop announcements coming soon.
