California BLM Assessments and Tools

Trout Unlimited worked with the Bureau of Land Management to create planning tools to assist them in 1) identifying key areas for meeting population objectives for aquatic species/communities and habitat objectives, including the conservation of high aquatic biodiversity areas that are relatively intact and restoration opportunities within important biodiversity/species areas that are degraded, and 2) providing consistent guidance and data for addressing aquatic dependent resources with the Resource Management Plan process and for evaluating action or project proposals. To meet these needs, TU modified its watershed-scale assessment tool, the Conservation Success Index, to specifically accommodate factors of interest to the BLM such as climate change and BLM special status species, and modified the Meadow Restoration Fish Assessment Tool for evaluating limiting factors for project assessment.
