Conservatin on Tap – “Unveiling the Skies: Drones for Ecological Monitoring & Conservation in the Driftless Area”

February 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Drone mapping has emerged as a game-changer revolutionizing ecological monitoring and conservation by providing a bird’s-eye view of ecosystems. Drones enhance efficiency in monitoring vast areas, facilitate rapid response to environmental threats, and contribute valuable data for informed decision-making. Using examples from drone imagery based ecological research in the Driftless area (detecting invasive aquatic plants; mapping cold water habitats, geomorphic properties of driftless streams, and prairie vegetation phenology) this talk will discuss the potentials and challenges of using drones for ecological applications in the Driftless.
