This workshop is a follow-up workshop to the Sierra Azul Connectivity Workshop held on October 11th, 2006, both or which are cosponsored by the Elkhorn Slough Coastal Training Program and the Silicon Valley Land Conservancy. This workshop, like its predecessor, will focus on biological connectivity issues in the Santa Cruz Mountains' Sierra Azul region. The Sierra Azul consists of the southern portion of the Santa Cruz Mountains (Hwy 17 south) and is a region thought to be important to east-west and north-south wildlife movement, connecting the Santa Cruz Mountains with two other eco-regions: the Diablo Range to the east and the Gabilan Range to the south. Our first workshop brought together leading corridor ecologists in an attempt to bring together the latest scientific information on biotic corridors and species' movement patterns. This follow-up workshop aims to take that scientific information to decision makers to help inform the design and management of biotic corridors in the Sierra Azul region.
