This process is used to assess the multiple benefits and management of a potential acquisition based on:
After thorough analysis the department will make onsite inspections to verify ecological benefits and cost factors.
The department will still buy some lands outside of the TEAs for exceptional recreational, cultural, historical, educational, water access, resource-based economic and in-holding/management purposes in existing department managed land and parks. Such lands are acquired if they meet the requirements of Appendix A to the scoring system.
Some POS Stateside funding will also be used for the purchase of permanent Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) easements. CREP easements make permanent the conservation practices established through 10 to 15 year CREP contracts.
