1995 Midwest Oak Savanna and Woodland Ecosystems Conferences


This recovery plan is the product of a several-year process involving hundreds of people, including scientists, professionals, educators, and administrators. That process began when scores of knowledgeable conservationists submitted their ideas regarding oak savanna recovery in preparations for a 1993 workshop. Milo Anderson, W. Buck, Karen Holland, Steve Packard, and Greg Rajsky compiled those ideas into a pre-workshop discussion document (M. Anderson et al. 1993). Additional ideas were generated and discussed at the workshops held at the Environmental Protection Agency offices in Chicago. These expanded ideas were then edited by Paul Botts et al. (1994) and several other editors into the Oak Ecosystems Recovery Plan 1994 Draft. That document was widely circulated for comment.

This 1995 iteration of the Recovery Plan builds upon these two previous works and the many written and spoken reactions to them. Thus, credit rightfully belongs to the many participants throughout this process. Funding for this part of the project has been provided by US EPA Great Lakes National Program Office.
