Description

See also: Maritime Chaparral, Habitat RestorationThis workshop will focus on defining the threatened maritime chaparral community, which is protected by many coastal counties and the California Coastal Commission. There has been some confusion about what constitues maritime chaparral, and how best to delineate it. We hope that this workshop will help. On June 12th, the Coastal Training Program will convene some of the leading authorities on this subject in a workshop that is designed so that attendees will leave with a better understanding of: 1) the distribution of maritime vs. more inland chaparral 2) the current science defining maritime chaparral habitat 3) plant species indicative of maritime chaparral 4) rare and narrowly endemic species found in maritime chaparral habitat 5) ways to best delineate maritime chaparral 6) how agencies such as the California Coastal Commission, California Fish and Game, and coastal counties protect maritime chaparral We will have presentations by: Todd Keeler-Wolf,Senior Vegetation Ecologist, Wildlife and Habitat Data Analysis Branch,California Department of Fish and Game Mike Vasey, manzanita authority and teacher at San Francisco State. Mike is now working on his doctorate at UC Santa Cruz on maritime chaparral distribution and ecology Jonna Engel, Ecologist, California Coastal Commission Deborah Hillyard, Environmental Scientist, California Department of Fish and Game Jeff Main, Senior Planner, Monterey County Planning Department With luck, vegetation ecologist John Sawyer, professor at Humboldt State University will also join us. We are also currently working with a few private consultants who are familiar the difficult issues in defining and delineating maritime chaparral. The vision is for a small workshop that is conducive to a both learning and a discussion.
