103: Tools to Manage Ecosystem Processes
Land management is a practice of doing: doing what's needed, when it's needed, to produce. But we mustn't forget the importance of how. Often we overlook the tools we use to manage, at a great cost.

Learn to shift your thinking from conventional to holistic and expand your toolbox, allowing you to better understand how your decision making and tool choice will have a huge impact on your outcomes.


This course is for:
-Land Managers seeking to manage land regeneratively
-Teams who are changing their approach to management
-Consumers looking to make educated choices
-Stewards of our environment


You will learn:
-What tools are available for managing ecosystem processes
-How the application of these management tools affects the land
-How the type of environment influences the effect of those management tools
-How to read the land to determine what tools have been applied in the past
-How you can begin to use tools in your own context


Estimated course time: 4 hours
