Management Guidance Summaries

A key document in the Bird Conservation Area Program, the management guidance summary of a BCA provides a physical description of the site, lists which BCA criteria it meets, lists important species and habitat types, and provides guidance relative to bird conservation not only for management purposes, but for operations, research, education and outreach. Local contacts for more information about the site are also listed. Management guidance summaries are updated as new information becomes available.
