The Nature Conservancy is a science-based organization that makes significant investments in research and monitoring of the ecological outcomes and effectiveness of our conservation work. The Illinois Chapter has large and rapidly increasing quantities of data that must be appropriately managed to make the data accessible and to prevent their loss. The purpose of the data stewardship workshop was to design and launch a TNC data stewardship initiative to organize and manage data internally in the near term, and scope future efforts for multi-organization collaboration and coordination. This initiative, focusing initially on the Emiquon project with data from many sources, including university and agency partners, will inform subsequent data and information stewardship initiatives for other TNC programs.
