Title: Marion County : Natural heritage park selection and acquisition plan
Author: Marion County (Or.)
Abstract: The Natural Heritage Parks Program has three primary objectives. 1. Provide visitors the opportunity for nature-oriented recreation, environmental education, and appreciation of Marion County’s natural heritage. 2. Provide critical habitats for rare plants and animals. 3. Reestablish important environmental processes. To select the potential Natural Heritage Park sites, the pre-Euro-American settlement ecosystems that the county wished to represent within the park system were first defined. Working with these historical ecosystems as objectives, a decision framework was developed for identifying specific areas that could be preserved or restored, while also providing secondary benefits that achieved county goals. This framework was developed through research of similar projects, recommendations from county staff members, discussions with other public land management agencies, and a close examination of the county’s long-term goals.
