Scientific Study

Within our Strategic Plan 2020, a key stewardship priority is to manage our lands for biodiversity.  In order to accomplish this, Steep Rock Association (SRA) applies science-based knowledge of our land’s natural resources and wild inhabitants.  A broad spectrum of research has been performed on the preserves by state biologists, professional contractors, SRA staff, and trained citizen scientists.  The data acquired allows us to make informed decisions on all aspects of our mission from prioritizing preservation, planning recreational use, to enhancing habitat.  Below is a list of topics SRA has investigated along with acquired data and developed protocols where appropriate.
