This is the main page of the Eastern Working Group (EWG) Science Delivery Team.
Purpose: The purpose of the Partners in Flight Eastern Working Group (PIF EWG) Science Delivery Team (SDT) is to build a structure that facilitates expanded use of best management practices (BMPs) as well as useful and practical (win-win) recommendations to benefit birds on public and private lands with the goal of making it easier to implement science delivery to multiple stakeholders. The SDT will develop action plans and disseminate technical assistance that serve to address five primary issues:
-Land managers overwhelmed by profusion of guidelines (site, ownerships, landscapes.)
-Public perception of management
-Why should landowners manage for birds?
-Insufficient incentives for private landowners.
