One of the greatest challenges facing landscape conservation is how to ensure ecosystem-wide conservation goals, such as those articulated in Landscape Conservation Designs, can effectively inform local management plans and actions. Developing feasible conservation goals and useful landscape planning products requires participation by local stakeholders. However, opportunities for these stakeholders to engage in planning processes are often limited.

Recently completed research carried out by partners at Ducks Unlimited and the Rainwater Basin Joint Venture, funded by the Great Plains LCC, has been able to provide a clearer picture of Sandhill crane and migratory waterfowl habitat selection in the Platte River with the aim of guiding more strategic and effective conservation action to ensure these birds rem
Please join the North Atlantic LCC for a Science Seminar led by Ethan Plunkett of the Designing Sustainable Landscapes (DSL) project at the University of Massachusetts Amherst to learn about a new component of their suite of landscape conservation models: Sprawl, an urban growth model that simulates development 70 years into the future for the 13-st

Great Plains LCC Science Webinar Series: 2nd Wednesday of each month @2pm MT
If you are a fisheries or aquatic biologist, stream manager, or hydrologist, this webinar will present fundamentally new information about streams in the Gulf Coastal Plains & Ozarks region.
Speaker: James J. Roberts, U.S. Geological Survey, Colorado Water Science Center, Fort Collins, CO
This webinar is part of the Great Basin LCC webinar series...
Speaker: Tamara Wall, Desert Research Institute
John Devney will present a program (Working Wetlands) that Delta Waterfowl has been working on for the past few years which has been guided significantly by input from North Dakota waterfowl and wetland experts as well as North Dakota agricultural group leadership. The tool is an effort to create a new voluntary, incentive based working lands tool to conserve small shallow wetlands in the Prairie Pothole Region because of their incredible importance to breeding ducks.
A multi-year collaborative partnership is underway among the U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, Landscape Conservation Cooperatives, and state and NGO partners, with the goal of assessing species' adaptive capacity to climate change.
