How we use information is as important as the integrity of the information itself.
Hickory Creek specializes in interpreting scientific information for general audiences and putting it to use for natural resource protection. We can maximize the effectiveness of environmental information by interpreting and sharing it in terms that can be easily understood, developing strategies for action, and effectively communicating with decision makers and community members.
To facilitate the use of information, Hickory Creek provides:
- Reports and articles
- Media presentations
- Brochures and fact sheets
Selected projects include:
- Habitat Assessment, Ecosystems, and a New Approach for Evaluating Development Impacts (for Northeast Natural History Conference)
