Position Statements/Policy Announcements
The Jasper Ridge mission statement and Strategic Plan form the basis upon which policies and position statements are formulated. Policies range from who and under what circumstances individuals or groups may have access or hold events at the preserve to formally expressing positions on important land use issues that effect the preserve such as the future of Searsville Dam.
Formal position statements are drafted under the leadership of the faculty director and the Jasper Ridge Advisory Committee with input from other appropriate entities within Stanford University.
The executive director, in consultation with the Jasper Ridge Advisory Committee, staff, and the Jasper Ridge Coordinating Committee, establishes and implements permits and protocols.
