Conservation Planning in Coastal Douglas-fir Ecosystems: A Quick Guide

“Conservation Planning in Coastal Douglas-fr Ecosystems: A Quick Guide for Local
Government” was created to help local government staff implement conservation
planning for CDF ecosystems by increasing awareness of available conservation planning
resources.


The CDFCP recognizes there can be signifcant challenges for local governments wanting
to conserve CDF ecosystems. For example, these ecosystems are often not recognized
as globally unique and endangered ecosystems, nor is their economic value as natural
assets for local communities fully appreciated. Restrictions on development can be
politically unpopular, while acquiring and managing CDF lands can be expensive. In
addition, accurate mapping and data can be hard to come by and difcult to understand,
and limited incentives exist for private land owners to implement conservation measures.
There is no silver bullet to overcome these challenges. However, this Quick Guide is
intended to provide some ideas and pointers that local government staff may fnd useful.
