8:15 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Synopsis: Opportunities exist to conserve biodiversity when land is
subdivided for development. This workshop introduces participants to the
key principles and practices required to conserve biodiversity during
design, construction, and post-construction phases. Participants will also
learn about an online evaluation tool, called "Building for Birds." This
tool allows decision makers to manipulate amounts of forest fragments
(urban/rural) and tree canopy (in residential areas) and determine the best
designs for conserving bird habitat. In addition, participants will learn
about Onslow County natural resource programs and extension resources that
can be used to create neighborhoods and individual lots that conserve
natural resources.

*WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES: *

1) To provide information and resources on key principles and practices
required to conserve biodiversity and natural resources during design,
construction, and post-construction phases of development.
2) To provide information about how to use an online tool to evaluate
different landscape design scenarios and impacts on bird habitat during the
breeding season.
3) To provide information about how to use an online tool to evaluate
different landscape design scenarios and impacts on bird habitat during the
migration season.

Dr. Mark Hostetler is a Professor, Department of Wildlife Ecology &
Conservation, University of Florida (UF). With over twenty years of
experience in urban wildlife and green development issues, Dr. Hostetler
conducts research and outreach on how urban landscapes could be designed
and managed, from small to large scales, to conserve biodiversity.
Partnering with policy makers, city/county planners, environmental
consultants, and developers, he leads efforts to establish model
communities that incorporate conservation design and management strategies
that enhance urban biodiversity and minimize development impacts on nearby
natural areas. Dr. Hostetler co-founded UF's Program for Resource Efficient
Communities (PREC) and collaborates with an interdisciplinary team of
scientists and graduate students to foster green development projects
nationally and internationally. He serves on the advisory board of URBIO,
which is a scientific network for education and research that promotes
urban biodiversity across the globe. He is the author of The Green Leap:
Conserving Biodiversity in Subdivision Development, and he has produced and
directed an award-winning TV series titled Living Green. He regularly
contributes to several online blogs regarding urban biodiversity
conservation and green development, including The Nature of Cities.
Dr. Hostetler has a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Purdue University
and his Master of Science and Ph.D. in Zoology are both from University of
Florida.
