Introduction to Miradi Training

OLTA is now in year 2 of our LTCF Capacity Building project. OLTA is delivering capacity building services for increased education, promotion and adherence to the Canadian Land Trust Standards & Practices to Ontario and Maritimes land trusts.

As part of OLTA’s LTCF Capacity Building project and in collaboration with Réseau de milieux naturels protégés (RMN) and Land Trust Alliance of British Columbia (LTABC), we are offering an Introduction to Miradi webinar on December 1st. Miradi guides nature conservation practitioners to design, manage, monitor, and learn from their projects to more effectively meet their conservation goals following a process laid out by the Open Standards.

This session is a hands-on training session using Miradi software to plan conservation projects based on the Open Standards. Through theoretical support and practical exercises, you will learn how to create a new project, create a conceptual model, assess risks, formulate a work plan and create and use Miradi reports.

This training will provide you with tools to:

  • visualize and document your soon-to-be protected sites,
  • identify which threats affect their conservation targets or which ones are the most significant,
  • assess which actions will influence the situation and results on your property, as well as how you will operationalize your stewardship plan through a clear work plan and a budget.

Prerequisites: Open Standards introductory training (for more info on a self-trained course available, please contact us).

Note that you will need to have access to Miradi software and a computer during this hands-on training session. Check here for full details on the different license purchase options (or a 60-day free trial). Low-income organizations can have access to a $30 USD license.

Date: December 1, 2020.

Duration: 3 hours, from 1-4pm EST, on Zoom.

Fee : Free for all conservation land trusts . Other organizations : $180
