The Nature Conservancy is facilitating cooperative recovery of five rare species throughout their natures ranges to reduce the probability that mandated changes to training activities on Fort Lewis Military Installation and McChord Air Force Base may be imposed for the protection of these species, and test specific techniques, which can then be transferred to other installations facing similar threats.
This report summarizes the products produced and lessons learned through the first year of the Strategy for the Cooperative Recovery of Rare Species Affecting Training Ranges. The project has reported specific progress and provided products on a quarterly basis. This report focuses on an overall summary of the project and success and weakness of the products produced. It does not provide the in-depth descriptions of products that the quarterly reports do. Yet this report does attempt to provide assessment of techniques, discussing aspects others should consider when implementing them on their installations or conservation landscape.
