Well-connected landscapes are necessary to sustain many of the natural and cultural resources important to the Appalachian region today and into the future. If these large connected areas are to endure and be resilient to impending environmental changes, it will require a collaborative effort involving many organizations and reaching across jurisdictional and political boundaries. This course will explain the science behind the development of NatureScape resources, demonstrate to users how to access the data and online tool, provide examples of how this resource can be used to make management decisions, and guide users through an interactive exercise using the data in a case study activity.
