Using science to protect habitatJune 13, 2018
Elizabeth Stewart-Severy - June 12, 2018
Listen to the story on Aspen Public Radio that succinctly describes how data can be used to help inform management and support ecosystem health.
Elise Osenga from Aspen Global Change Institute shares information about the iRON project that monitors climate conditions, including soil moisture, at Northstar Nature Preserve. AGCI is working with Pitkin County Open Space and Trails to monitor habitat conditions on public lands. People, plants and animals all enjoy the nearly 5,000 acres of land owned by Pitkin County Open Space and Trails. To make sure the shared space remains a thriving ecosystem, Open Space and Trails is turning to data collected on site.
