Watershed Landuse for the GTM Research Reserve Quick Topics

Management strategies must address watershed-scale issues to sustain and improve the condition of the GTM Research Reserve's natural resources. The primary objective is to reduce or prevent nonpoint pollution from contaminating the habitats. Increasing coastal populations will require novel approaches and cooperation among agencies and communities.

Strategies

  • Improved and coordinated science-based approach to watershed management.
  • Providing environmental education for the residents of the new town of Nocatee.
  • Supporting the communities surrounding the southern component of the GTM Research Reserve as a center for environmental education and learning.

Goal

Reduce the impact of watershed landuse on coastal resources by identifying priority pollutants and encouraging best management practices.

More information on how GTM Research Reserve is addressing watershed landuse is available within the GTM Research Reserve Management Plan (pdf - 12.8 MB).
