Comprehensive Planning to Promote Climate Resiliency Through Natural Infrastructure
Ozaukee Washington Land Trust (OWLT) is seeking a contractor to access and plan priority restoration projects on its nature preserves. The outcome of this effort will also inform OWLT’s approach to future conservation projects by identifying and prioritizing the most resilient lands in our mission area. Our strategic approach to land and water protection focuses on preserving and restoring biodiversity. Through conserving lands containing a diversity of natural features, we maintain the infrastructure necessary for maintaining the biodiversity and resiliency of our aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Our protected lands also include agricultural holdings and improving farming practices on those lands is an important long-term restoration strategy.
By assessing the natural infrastructure assets we own and manage, and by providing additional direction in assessing our future restoration and acquisition priorities, we will enhance the implementation and effectiveness of our stewardship efforts and be strategically positioned to leverage additional funding for climate resiliency strategies from regional and national funders.
