c. Anticipated Impacts

This project will provide extensive information on the context for ESH management in New York State; the state of knowledge of conservation needs and constraints; motivations, barriers, and the role of wildlife in landowners’ decisions to manage for ESH; and a typology of landowners. The project will outline outreach strategies or incentive programs that could effectively encourage private landowners in New York State to manage for ESH. We expect that these findings will aid the NYS DEC and their partner agencies interested in encouraging landowners to increase ESH. The results and conclusions will also further our understanding of the human dimensions of forestry and wildlife conservation.
