Latest On The Conservation Gateway

A well-managed and operational Conservation Gateway is in our future! Marketing, Conservation, and Science have partnered on a plan to rebuild the Gateway into the organization’s enterprise content management system (AEM), with a planned launch of a minimal viable product in late 2024.

Prospect-R is a web-based decision support tool that helps users determine the feasibility of floodplain restoration efforts. Prospect-R was developed specifically for the restoration of gravel pit mines on the Willamette River, but is ultimately intended to be used more broadly. Users of Prospect-R learn how to navigate socioeconomic, ecological, and logistical components of restoration that should be evaluated before the project begins. The decision support tool helps users organize their available data, broadly identifies the likelihood of project success, and pinpoints potential challenges that a project may encounter. Prospect-R is intended to be used by land managers, conservation organizations, government agencies, and any other group interested in floodplain restoration.

Prospect-R was jointly developed by The Nature Conservancy and Ecotrust with the generous support of the Meyer Memorial Trust.
