Mapping Springs and Seeps and Aquatic Habitat in the Desert LCC
Standardization of data collection techniques
Project Funding: $49,000 provided by US Fish and Wildlife Service
Project Duration: 2013
Expand inventory and assessment of springs, seeps, and aquatic resources (e.g., USGS, Spring Stewardship Alliance, Sky Island Alliance) to map springs and seeps throughout southern New Mexico, western Texas, and northern Mexico using a consistent protocol.
Host 2-3 workshops in 2013 to train people to conduct the Springs Stewardship Institute’s spring assessment protocol and promote it as a standardized method. This will facilitate standardized data collection across the landscape that can contribute to a broad scale inventory and assessment of springs, seeps, and aquatic resources throughout the Desert LCC.
