1) were located in cells within the CDOW no-use areas using a random stratified design based on distance to center of creek bed (0, 20 and 40 m).
2002, in a plot located outside the CDOW no-use area and 1 cell distance from a CDOW high-use cell.
treatment plots in aggregated CDOW no-use areas vs.
Locations in the pre-treatment period were then classified by cell type as individual high-use, CDOW no-use or other.
Similarly, to examine changes in site fidelity before and after treatment placement, a categorical analysis of the number of locations in CDOW high-use cells only (response variable) as a function of period (pre- and post-treatment) and sex were analyzed using the number of high-use cells in each year as an offset.
In November 2002, CDOW officially applied for federal funding of CSCP through the federal Landowner Incentive Program and called for raising and spending $25 million of state and federal funds.
Relevant documents were provided by CDOW and include internal communication concerning origins of CSCP, anonymous landowner applications for participation in CSCP, correspondence between CDOW and GOCO, and correspondence between CDOW and selected, anonymous landowners.
Direct observations involved face-to-face interviews with CDOW personnel, Ranchland League personnel and landowner participants.
Unanimously, participatory stakeholder groups, including landowners CDOW and the RL, all view CSCP as very successful in achieving a quantitative net gain (measured in acres) of designated species habitat protected.
Unanimously, landowner participants who placed conservation easements on their property and entered into management agreements with CDOW believe their agreements are "wise" (Fisher, Ury and Patton 1991, p4).
