Structured decision making for lake habitat restoration

November 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST

Free

Structured Decision Making (SDM) is a great tool to guide strategic habitat planning and address challenges and priorities to achieve restoration and conservation success. This webinar will provide an overview of how SDM can be used to balance largescale landscape needs with local restoration actions to guide decision making and achieve project goals. An overview of how to incorporate multiple competing priorities including species and population needs, partner and stakeholder interests, and climate impacts will be demonstrated alongside examples focused on lake ecosystems and habitats.

Our speaker:
Dr. Jessica Collier, Fish & Wildlife Biologist @USFWS Green Bay Fish & Wildlife Conservation Office

Jessica works out of the USFWS Green Bay, WI field office in the Partnerships and Habitat branch to assist with species and habitat restoration and conservation across the Lake Michigan basin. She received her Master’s degree in Conservation Biology from Central Michigan University focusing on coastal wetland refuge habitat for native freshwater mussels and a PhD from the University of Toledo where she created habitat suitability models to reintroduce lake sturgeon to the Maumee River (OH). Jessica is passionate about Great Lakes conservation and she is an avid gardener, runner, and stain glass artist.
