MJV Webinar: Rapid Assessment and Habitat Calculator for Roadside Habitat for Monarchs
May 28, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT
Monarch Joint Venture and collaborators over the past two years have been developing management tools for transportation managers interested in developing Roadside Habitat for Monarchs with funding from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program. They will share two parts of their project in webinars this May, with time for questions and answers.
- Friday MAY 17 1:00 PMCentral: Landscape Prioritization Model for Roadside Monarch Habitat– land use and road layers combine into a model of predicted habitat quality for monarchs in the landscape surrounding roads, which may be used by roadside vegetation managers assessing areas for installing or managing roadside monarch habitat. The webinar will demonstrate how states can download and run the model for their state using Esri ArcGIS software.
- Tuesday MAY 28 11:00Central: Rapid Assessment and Habitat Calculator for Roadside Habitat for Monarchs – for managers interested in describing the existing habitat in their roadsides, we will demonstrate how to install and customize the Rapid Assessment for your state, briefly overview field data collection, and showcase how Habitat Quality scores may be viewed spatially within Survey123.
