Snow cancelled the meeting for Savvy Women Exchanging Relevant Views last month, but the same speakers have rescheduled.

SWERV will meet for the presentation “Land Conservation and GIS Technology” from 10:30 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Feb. 11 at Filipino American Hall, 7566 High School Road.

All women are invited to learn how scientific data collection is helping local land trusts prioritize just which of our precious natural resources are most vital to protect for reasons varying from wildlife to climate change. Jane Stone, executive director of the Bainbridge Island Land Trust, and wildlife biologist Gina King, who is a specialist in Geographic Information System technology for the land trust, will share how land proposed for conservation is assigned a Conservation Value Index number. SWERV members should come prepared to share their own and community priorities.
