Among four new conservation projects in the U.S. that will add to work opportunities for low-income youth on public lands this summer are several in GIS in Wisconsin.
- Operation Fresh Start will engage 60 young people ages 16–24 in the inventory, planning, and restoration activities to identify and conserve the natural resources on 64 islands owned by BLM within the lower Wisconsin River. Activities include GIS mapping of plant communities and observed wildlife, natural features, and human use and development, and removing invasive species control and adding site enhancements such as bird boxes and signage.
Penn State is working on a new masters degree in GeoDesign.
