2022 STEP Webinar: Overview of the Ecological Land Classification System: Baseline data for understanding, assessing, and protecting natural heritage
Abstract: This webinar will briefly review what Ecological Land Classification (ELC) for Southern Ontario is. Then, we will go into depth about the different types of information the data set contains and how to understand the data. Finally, we will explore several innovative ways that ELC data can be used by municipalities to assess their natural areas and protect natural features.
This webinar is directed toward those who use ELC data in their planning, assessment and protection work (i.e. it is not a primer on how to collect the data from the field).
