Landscape Conservation Cooperative Network Council

The LCC Council of interagency, tribal and non-governmental representatives provides national-level coordination and support for the LCC Network.

The purpose of the LCC Council is to support the cooperative conservation and sustainable resource management efforts of the LCC Network; assist the LCC Network in achieving its goals; contribute to building a broad constituency of partners; and help sustain the LCC initiative.

LCC Council members serve as advocates for the LCC Network by reporting to governments, organizations and individuals on the status and success stories of the LCCs, and they catalyze innovative thinking and solution sharing across the LCC Network.

For more details on how the LCC Council adds value to the LCCs and LCC Network and contribute to their effectiveness and sustainability, see the LCC Council Charter.
