Summary

Sky Island Alliance will develop science and conservation-based guidance to assist natural resource managers in responding to expected climate change and other stressors on springs ecosystems in sky island regions of the Desert LCC. The project will result in publication of an Arizona Springs Restoration Handbook, which will aid managers in directing limited resources to preserve these key water resources and species that depend on them.

Purpose

The purpose of this project is: 1) Reduce the vulnerability of springs to climate change and non-climate stressors. 2) Increase regional understanding of springs ecology, management status, their contribution to landscape-level resilience, fire impacts on them, and their relationship to the hydrogeologic areas in which they are located. 3) Build and enhance technical capacity to collect and understand critical baseline information on unstudied springs and to monitor them long-term. 4) Help managers adapt management of springs to climate change and promote climate change adaptation practices at the landscape scale. 5) Guide future restoration efforts to increase the resilience of springs ecosystems in the face of climate change impacts and non-climate stressors. 6) Improve future management and enhance stewardship of springs.
