Past Events: Conference
The Great Basin Consortium, the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, and Utah State University co-sponsored this conference to continue sharing the latest information and to plan for the conservation, restoration, and maintenance of resilient sagebrush ecosystems.
The North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative provided funds to Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife last year to help with integrating climate change into the Washington State Wildlife Action Plan as part of the 10-year update. Jessi Kerschner, lead scientist for EcoAdapt, led the efforts to develop this assessment. The Assessment provides narrative descriptions and rankings of the climate sensitivity of 268 species and 30 ecological systems.
This workshop will provide invited participants with an opportunity to help shape the future conservation landscape and help ensure that the conservation community’s collective voice speaks through the GCPO LCC Blueprint. Draft blueprint maps and datasets will be made available for public comment through the GCPO LCC's Conservation Planning Atlas.
