Stewardship Program

Monitoring Protocols

Monitoring visits are conducted in order to report site integrity or breaches of easement and dedication agreements. Site visits also include periodic boundary re-marking and documentation of site conditions.

Monitoring includes activities that occur before, during and after the actual property visit:

Pre-visit
  • Understand the agreement
  • Review baseline management report/maps, past monitoring reports and management plan
  • Contact the landowner
Site visit
  • Evaluate exercised reserved rights for compliance
  • Check boundary / violations
Post-visit
  • Generate stewardship monitoring report(s)
  • Notify appropriate entities if encroachment or management issues are identified during site visit

Site-Management Activities

Management includes affirmative activities or remedial actions necessary for maintaining conservation values of the property, and may also include activities designed to enhance those values.

At least three potential activities:

  1. Working with landowners as they exercise reserved rights
  2. Implementing management plans
  3. Remedial actions, such as trash removal
