An "enhancement" is a conservation activity used to treat natural resources and improve conservation performance. Enhancements are designed to maintain or exceed the quality criteria, or stewardship level, for the resource concern. Enhancements tied directly to conservation practices standards exceed the minimum treatment requirements of the standard to address additional criteria or considerations. Conservation practice standards and quality criteria for resource concerns can be found in sections II and III of the Field Office Technical Guide.
An enhancement bundle is a suite of conservation enhancement activities that when adopted and installed together address resource concerns in a more comprehensive and cost-effective manner. Installing bundles results in greater conservation effects than could be achieved through individual enhancements.
