Date: 12/8/2016

Time: 12 noon – 1 pm

Location: 3rd Floor Training Room (Room 315) of Wildlife Resources Commission Building on Varsity Drive, Centennial Campus

By popular demand, Rua Mordecai and Mallory Martin with the South Atlantic LCC will be providing an informal overview of the Southeast Conservation Adaptation Strategy (SECAS). Many conservation partners are working through SECAS to develop a regional vision for an ecologically connected network of lands and waters to sustain key natural and cultural resources in a changing future. A key outcome of SECAS is the integration of Southeast and Caribbean LCCs’ spatial priorities into a Conservation Blueprint for the broader region. Version 1.0 of that Blueprint was released back in October and will be available online very soon. Rua and Mallory will explain in more detail what SECAS is and how the Blueprint was put together. And of course, there will be plenty of time afterward for questions and the usual round of updates from everyone on what they’re working on.

Parking: Due a special WRC commission meeting that’s happening concurrently the Brown Bag, visitor parking on the top of the WRC parking deck is going to be very limited. So, please consider these alternatives:

–If you’re able to bus, bike, or walk from elsewhere on NCSU’s campus, please do so!

–If you will be driving, we can give you a free parking pass to park at the Venture Center parking deck (courtesy of the Hub), which is just across Varsity Drive from the WRC building. Please email Hilary if you’d like one, and she will send you a pass with instructions.

–There are four hidden visitor spots that may be available. When you turn off of Varsity to go to the WRC parking deck, you’ll see a red sign with a left arrow pointing toward the WRC parking deck, and a right arrow pointing toward the Keystone Science Center. Take the right fork, and you’ll see spots marked “visitor” on your right just over the speed bump.

–If for some reason you prefer a pay lot or need a last-minute back-up, you can also pay to park $2/hour at the Partners Way lot, which is also walkable to the WRC building.
