Why You Should Care

Fine-tunes Performance Tracking

Turns Field Data into Actionable Intelligence

Thanks to the workflows and systems Sitka created for us, my team has more time to do higher-order analyses and syntheses. Plus, we just enjoy using the tools from Sitka!

How It Works

Beginning with our DataDiagnostic™ service, we work with you to map out optimal workflows. These workflow maps, called broadsheets, describe the practices and routines of capturing data, structuring information, and sharing knowledge.

Based on these broadsheets, we then work with you to develop an infrastructure that bolsters workflow. These infrastructures serve to:

  • Streamline management processes
  • Align project activities with programmatic strategies
  • Integrate field monitoring
  • Track changes against baselines in complex systems
  • Standardize performance reporting
  • Ensure organizational and site-specific knowledge is resilient to staff turnover

Leveraging our lean design build methodology–an iterative, client-centric engagement model–we have a proven track record of lowering administrative costs by streamlining workflows and leveraging investments in existing technologies.

The Sitka-built Lake Tahoe Info Stormwater Tools software is alarmingly intuitive!

Jason Burke | Stormwater Program Coordinator, City of South Lake Tahoe

Access the Key Findings from Our Second Conservation Manager Roundtable

This past July, we hosted our second Conservation Manager Roundtable in our Portland office. Our table was rounded by 18 representatives from 10 different natural areas organizations from across the west (California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington). While we had a few returnees in attendance, the majority of the participants were new faces for the event but certainly not new to conservation.

Nevada Leads Western States with Creative Solution to Protect Endangered Greater Sage-Grouse

Nevada is the first state in the nation to launch an online Conservation Credit System which provides private landowners and public land managers incentives to preserve, enhance, and restore greater sage-grouse habitat. This system provides a statewide market that allows developers (e.g. mining and energy companies) to offset their impact on sage-grouse by purchasing credits from private landowners who have land that qualifies as a safe habitat for the endangered birds. The first credit transaction on the system occurred November 9th.
