RLG, Senior Project Advisor

The Role of the Management Advisory Committee is as follows:

The Committee will meet two times a year.  It will act as a problem solving body on issues that the Legacy Project staff need advise and member agency involvement on.  Topics include data, staffing, and other issues for partnering on beyond the state government.  In the near term, the Committee will assist the Legacy Project to identify common imagery, data and mapping needs; improve data sharing and updating systems; and to set priorities for developing or improving conservation data sets.  The Committee will also advise on how the Legacy Project’s conservation planning-support tools can best be designed to assist individual agencies’ conservation planning efforts.  The committee will work in cooperation with the GIS Council and the California Biodiversity Council.
