MANAGEMENT AT SSU PRESERVES
The SSU Preserves lie within complex biological, social and economic landscapes. Management issues at our Preserves are representative of regional land management issues, and create opportunities for collaborative efforts with researchers, students, agencies and organizations.
As a State University, we bring unique resources to these collaborations, including involvement of our faculty and students, use of the best available science and information, and dedication to adaptive approaches that inform future management decisions. As much as possible, our management initiatives are undertaken as demonstration projects that can be shared with students, landowners, managers, and policymakers to highlight successful techniques that conserve natural processes in our region.
