About the project

Through a 2020 science transfer project, the Lake Superior and Heʻeia reserves and partners brought renewed attention to reserve site profiles and supported the development of a modernized format that better aligns with and boosts the impact of reserve programs.

About this resource

In 2021, the project team worked with the UW-Madison Division of Extension Evaluation Unit to conduct a survey of reserve staff and partners to assess thoughts, perspectives and needs of NERRS Site Profiles users. Survey results revealed that users wanted updated and relevant information in site profiles, wished for them to be digital and searchable, and wanted them to include cultural and historical content related to each reserve. This evaluation report covers the evaluation aim, the process of survey development, key findings, cross tabulations of some key variables, recommendations and conclusions.
