Oak woodlands, oak savanna and upland prairies, once widely distributed across the Willamette Valley, are now the focus of important restoration and conservation efforts. Several federal and state agencies as well as private landowners are investing substantial amounts of money and resources on conservation of these ecosystems. Are these efforts working? How do we know?

Willamette Partnership is hosting a training session on measurement tools developed to evaluate the ecological impact and improvement associated with the implementation of conservation actions in oak woodland and upland prairie ecosystems.

In particular, participants will learn how to use Willamette Partnership’s newly revised Upland Prairie Habitat Quality Calculator, with modules for measuring Fender’s blue butterfly and rare plants habitat quality.

The training session will include background on metric development, field training, and provide an understanding of what results mean and how they are applied to credit calculation.
