Quick tech question--how can we toggle the mute/unmute options on our end? I don't see any buttons or controls, and there may be some background noise...
Christopher Raymond
01:26:30
Yes, thanks all!
Donald Leadbetter
01:27:32
(David, I think we attendees are all muted)
David Shelley
01:27:56
Thank you, Don, for the clarification that all attendees are muted...
Melissa Rary
01:28:23
Hi David - all attendees will be muted with their sound off during the duration of the call. Please use the chat box and Q&A box to communicate with the panelists and attendees. Thanks!

Thanks Sharon and Tom!
Samuel Cuthell
01:54:56
Tech question: I can only see the question I posed, and not those posed by others. Is there a way to see all questions posed.

Welcome Amiran!
Carena van Riper
02:10:34
It's good to know there is flexibility in the system to accommodate these different kinds of names! A "reserve" and a "network" (for instance) have really different connotations, and its great the different sites could identify their own approaches.
Knute Nadelhoffer
02:10:37
Sending to all this time: Thanks to Sarah for your What’s in a Name discussion.How about changing “Man and the Biosphere” to be gender inclusive?
Irina Irvine
02:11:50
I second Knute's comment on gender neutrality on nomenclature.
Kelly Cerialo
02:12:00
Knute, thank you for raising this issue about a more gender inclusive title… this is an important consideration as we move forward.
Mary Riddle
02:12:13
Where is a like button?
Sarah Gaines
02:12:18
Hi Knute - A number of members of the Working Group just submitted a paper on that topic! We decided not to open that conversation today since we don't control the global MAB program, but I feel very strongly about it. In the US, we mostly mention the WNBR.
Knute Nadelhoffer
02:12:56
Thank you Sarah. Happy you’re working on this!
Sarah Gaines
02:13:19
Anyone have a good alternative name? HAB has a different connotation!

will results from this wkshp be shared with us later?
Iara Lacher

done good info for us all here, I think.

Hi Iara - yes, the recording from the session will be shared with registrants following the workshop.

Lee Anne Bledsoe

Hi all, Sharing some additional information and links for the upcoming case study:
Lee Anne Bledsoe
02:27:56
Karst is a special type of landscape that is formed by the dissolution of soluble rocks, like limestone and dolomite. Karst regions contain aquifers that are capable of providing large supplies of water. https://karstwaters.org

The Barren River Area Development District (BRADD) is the Area Development District that serves the southcentral region of Kentucky. BRADD’s mission is to preserve and advance the quality of life and economic well-being for the citizens of the BRADD through regional collaboration. All programs and services of the BRADD are filtered through this mission. https://www.bradd.org/]

Greetings from the far north at Denali National Park and Preserve
Sarah Gaines
02:31:27
Taking advantage of having everyone together, let us know if you have any feedback on the polygon map we shared earlier so we can perfect it. Thanks.
Knute Nadelhoffer
02:34:30
Hi Sarah, Obtawaing stretches, north to south, from the Canadian border near Sault Saint Marie, MI to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. We can send you a map, if you tell us where to send it.
Guillermo Espinosa
02:34:45
Hi Sarah, would it be possible to include state and national parks that currently do not have the MAB designation or are not in progress of applying for it? It could be an interesting look as to areas the network could expand into nationally.
Kelly Cerialo
02:42:14
Fantastic video!
Alison Ainsworth
02:42:46
The video was great!
Meredith Speicher
02:42:51
Loved the video, great job!!!
Christy Brigham
02:42:54
Great movie!! I love the beautiful scenery and all the large themes you covered - sustainability, community, history, culture, and more!
Lisa Brush
02:42:56
Agreed! That was great.
Melissa Rodeffer
02:43:35
What a fantastic Video and educational experience. Thank you for making this a safer place for people around the world.
Cliff McCreedy
02:43:50
Thanks!
Marissa Schorr

Loved it! Great Job Lia and Cliff! So glad you let me help in the filming!
Kendra Briechle

Congrats Cliff and team! Seeing the images and hearing the voices of Mammoth Cave region bring it all home given the water needs for all

I'm hoping Mammoth Cave can talk a bit about how being a Biosphere Region has helped them connect with other sites facing similar challenges around the world?
Mary Riddle
02:52:46
Was the advisory council formed after the Biosphere Reserve was designated or after? And if after, how long after?
Miguel Canals

Collaborative research happens at all levels - post-doc, visiting scholars, graduate, undergraduate as well as several regional high schools.
Lee Anne Bledsoe
02:58:23
Mary, The council was formally created after designation. We were established in1990, extended our boundaries in 1996 at which time I believe the council was formed. I'll let Bruce Powell chime in with specifics.

03:49:46
Kudos to the speakers and organizers. Great information!
Jonathan Putnam
03:50:01
I'd like to know if there are any thoughts from the panelists and others about what the MAB program "brings to the table" that perhaps would not have been possible otherwise? Are there any unique or special aspects of being part of the program which you would like to highlight?
Mary Riddle
03:50:42
Great question Jon. I have the same question.
Sharon Farrell
03:52:26
One last resource/document that explores partnership building and sustainability in a cross boundary context https://static1.squarespace.com/static/56438501e4b0d160674c3131/t/59a0560dd55b4159c56932ef/1503680024061/SCMSN-Case-Study-A-Regionwide-Cross-Sector-Approach-to-Conservation.pdf
Samuel Cuthell
03:56:35
One major difference with the BR program v. other conservation is that 80% of boundaries are outside the core area, and have human habitation.
Lauren Wenzel
03:58:40
I would add- the strong economic and social component of the program - tying to long term sustainability with nature at its core.
Guillermo Espinosa
03:59:27
Any experience interacting with large landowners in urbanized areas and how they could benefit from being included in the Biosphere region activities (e.g. conservation, education, etc)? Urban sprawl/development vs conservation is not an easy equation to balance.
Sarah Gaines
04:01:06
I'm struck today by the commonalities of the participants of this call - while our network's BRS have different conservation designations and partners. Also, related to the conservation role outside core areas, just read a fascinating article about the importance of buffer areas outside protected areas in Madagascar for lemur conservation - and the role of vanilla farmers in managing that conservation.
Samuel Cuthell
04:03:43
Sarah, there is another example of this in a paper talking about BR branding on traditional products produced in Austrian BRs sold in super markets, which increased greater awareness of BRs, increasing tourism, increasing purchasing frequency.
Irina Irvine
04:04:18
How is best for us to take advantage of 30 by 30 right now?
Sharon Farrell
04:05:58
Irina - In California we are starting to work with Deputy Secretary Jennifer Norris on the newly created Biodiversity Collaborative. This will offer a great opportunity to scientists, land managers, NGOs etc. to engage in creating a roadmap and tactics to move the needle on the 30-30 goals.
Cliff McCreedy
04:06:30
Thanks, Bob!

Moses part the water!
Jonathan Putnam
04:11:29
right!
Jon W. Allan
04:11:52
I think that is a great point we see similarly in the Great Lakes. Large systems move, change, flow, they are deeply dynamic as a condition of health. (Yes, they are perturbed now by climate and other elements) but how do we think about these as living systems when the dominant human characteristic is to create fixedness?
Mary Riddle
04:12:56
Thanks everyone. Have another meeting. Great to hear about everyone's work at landscape and human levels.
Samuel Cuthell
04:12:56
Thank you all for working to ensure the continued significance of the American science community on the global level.
Jonathan Putnam
04:13:21
