Oak Barrens Monitoring to Inform Management


Join the Tallgrass Prairie and Oak Savanna Fire Science Consortium for a day to learn about, field test, and provide feedback on a manager-friendly monitoring protocol for oak barrens. No plots or expert plant knowledge needed! Typically takes 1-2 hours per management unit to complete the protocol. Supports evaluation of oak barrens composition, structure, and condition.

Learning Objectives:

  •  Identify oak barrens sites with good restoration potential
  •  Develop restoration goals grounded in sound science
  •  Adjust management prescriptions over time based on your own monitoring data

This two-part workshop is free, but registration is required to help keep group size low.

The webinar is open to anyone interested in oak barrens monitoring. 

The webinar presented on July 22nd is required for field day participants, and will provide an introduction to the project goals, design, and methods. A recording will be available July 23-Aug. 5.

Location: Lawrence Creek State Natural Area
