Dr. Mae Davenport, CFANS, University of Minnesota
Project Advisory Team includes representation from federal, state and local resource agencies.
Phase I - Local collaboration and stakeholder inventory
Phase II - Key informant interviews with stakeholders; Focus groups with resource professionals
Phase III - Landowner survey; Reporting - decision support tool
We anticipate that this project will “Develop a better understanding of the motivations and attitudes that landowners and producers have toward conservation and water management will help ensure that conservation funds are used effectively in the future to retain current lands and better target implementation of practices on new lands.”
