Join Jeff Herrick (ARS) for this interactive workshop which will provide input to USDA-ARS as it designs and develops the next generation of apps and other tools to (a) access management-relevant knowledge and information, including through Ecological Site Descriptions, and (b) collect monitoring data you can use to tell your story.
We will begin with a participant discussion of current barriers to knowledge access and monitoring. Then we will develop specific recommendations for work that the data and knowledge systems group at the USDA-ARS Range Management Research Unit (Jornada), in cooperation with partners, should complete in the next 5 years.
NOTE: This webinar is open only to permittees and those actively engaged in rangeland monitoring.
