Resource Management Working Group

The mission of the NCSCP Resource Management Working Group is to identify issues regarding longleaf ecosystem management in a landscape with mixed ownership (public and private), and develop recommendations to resolve those issues. Objectives include:

  • Optimize the ability of land managers to cooperatively apply landscape management concepts on conservation lands
  • Establish opportunities for the exchange of information and ideas between conservation land managers
  • Provide forested habitat buffers around and linkages between, existing conservation lands
  • Encourage private landowners to manage their lands in a manner compatible with natural resource management of public lands and private conservation lands
  • Establish opportunities for the exchange of information and ideas with private landowners

Additionally, 3 groups were formed based on recommendations from the NCSCP Resource Management Working Group. These include:

  • Land Manager's Working Group
  • Private Landowner Council
  • NC Sandhills Prescribed Fire Council
