Southern California Grasslands Symposium
April 4, 2012 -- Lessons learned, successes and failures, conducting adaptive management and restoration on protected lands in Southern California.


Jerre Ann Stallcup, M.A.
Chief Resources Officer

CBI hosted a symposium on management and monitoring of Southern California grasslands on March 22, at the San Diego Institute for Conservation Research in Escondido.  The audience of 100 land managers and wildlife agency staff from San Diego, Orange, and Riverside counties attended to learn successes and failures of management efforts from scientists conducting adaptive management and restoration on protected lands in southern California and the San Francisco Bay area.  The symposium was planned in concert with The Nature Conservancy and San Diego Management and Monitoring Program who are working with CBI on management and monitoring of lands conserved as part of the State of California’s Natural Community Conservation Planning program.  Funding for CBI’s work on grasslands in San Diego County is provided through a grant from the San Diego Association of Governments (Transnet EMP funds).  Jerre Stallcup, Patricia Gordon-Reedy, and Jessie Vinje of CBI planned and implemented the event, which was hailed as a successful model for future symposia to share information on land management.  Jerre and Patricia have been working on planning, managing and monitoring conserved lands in San Diego County since 1991.
