Taking care of nature
The Open Space Authority works diligently to take care of its beautiful open space lands. By utilizing adaptive management strategies, the Authority is able to keep the preserves in pristine condition for the enjoyment of visitors.
The Open Space Authority uses an adaptive management approach to maintaining open space lands. Adaptive management is a dynamic, structured process of iterative decision-making that incorporates feedback, new information and environment changes (Greenprint).
The Authority's Land Management team gathers data and continually monitors environmental changes in climate, vegetation, and local and invasive species.
The Open Space Authority's adaptive management strategies are flexible, which allow for our conservation approach to be adjusted as needed based on current and anticipated future conditions.
