What is a Land Management Plan? 

A land management plan is a comprehensive document that details what you want to do with your property. It also provides a timeline for achieving those goals. It also records the previous improvements and maintenance done to a property and can help you set new goals for the future. It also allows you to consider alternatives to achieve your goals.

Conservation Area Land Management (CALM) plan 

The CALM plan is a document that describes the current conditions of conservation areas on campus and specifies management strategies for these areas. The CALM plan was developed by University staff after tours of campus Conservation Areas and passive recreation areas were conducted. The results of this process resulted in 22 specific area plans that detail issues and strategies specific to each Conservation Area. These 22 are plans formed the basis of the CALM plan. 

A Conservation Area Land Management (CALM) plan must meet the requirements outlined in State and Federal statutes and regulations. It must also be available for public review and comment. The Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) has a legal duty to assess the management plans. 

National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS) plan 

Developing a National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS) plan involves identifying and protecting natural and cultural resources in a landscape. The system’s emphasis is on the protection of entire landscapes and watersheds. The plan lays out specific management actions to recognize and protect the unique qualities of a particular landscape, such as wildlife habitat, historic and cultural values, and natural landscape. 

The NLCS plan was initially created by the Clinton administration, and it was widely believed that the incoming Bush administration would nix it. However, this program survived under both President Clinton and Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne. 

Wildlife habitat management objectives 

When creating a land management plan for wildlife habitat management, it is important to consider the larger context in which the management objectives will be accomplished. This will include the site characteristics and wildlife habitat characteristics. It should also take into account existing land uses and financial resources. The planning process should involve the involvement of the landowner, their family, and the forester. It is also important to include the objectives in writing so that they can be reviewed and revised as needed. 

Before developing a plan for wildlife habitat management, landowners should determine what goals they want to achieve and how they can achieve them. For example, they should prioritize the improvement of habitat quality with other objectives. For example, a landowner may want to focus on improving wildlife habitat in some areas, while others may want to protect aesthetic values. 

Non-market values of goods and services produced on public lands 

The value of non-market goods and services produced on public lands can be measured in several ways. One approach involves using stated preference methods, which involve asking respondents directly how much they would pay for a good or service. Another method is to estimate the value of the goods and services by analyzing trade-offs between different features and outcomes.
