The Transboundary Madrean Watersheds initiative is a large landscape, international effort to maintain and enhance the interconnected system of mountains, grasslands, deserts and waters that supports species diversity, promotes healthy watersheds, and maintains the overall ecosystem integrity tha
A common need identified by conservation partners is a forum for sharing lessons learned from on-the-ground resource management.

Because diversions of stream flow in the Rio Grande watershed predate stream gaging, there are no historical data that describe the natural flow regime of the river.
On its southbound course from Colorado to the Gulf of Mexico, the Rio Grande provides water resources for more than 13 million people.
Severe droughts and economic development in the Rio Grande Basin have significantly impacted the quantity and quality of water for natural and human systems, consequently affecting ecosystem services of the river.
Understanding how to manage scarce water during drought is one of the great challenges we face as a society, particularly for communities in the Rio Gra
The Rio Grande/Río Bravo is the lifeline of the arid region that stretches across the southern United States and Mexico, and supplying drinking water for more that 6 million people, including numerous Native American tribes, and irrigating about 2 million acres of land.

John Devney presents 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 Alaska Center for Conservation Science (ACCS) at the University of Alaska Anchorage, in partnership with the Northwest Boreal LCC, embarked on a project to map and quantify the human footprint across interior Alaska and northwestern Ca
The Ecological Atlas of the Bering, Chukchi and Beaufort Seas is a comprehensive, trans-boundary atlas that represents the current state of knowledge in a wide breadth of relevant Arctic marine domains centered around the North Pacific Arctic, ranging from physical oceanography to species ecology
The Northwest Boreal LCC is pleased to announce the launch of the Northwest Boreal Science and Management Research Tool.
Hooligan (Eulachon or Saak), a small anadromous smelt species, have been a culturally significant subsistence species for the Tlingit people for generations.
The Northwest Boreal LCC (NWB LCC) envisions a dynamic landscape that maintains functioning, resilient boreal ecosystems, and associated cultural resources.

A product of the Minnesota Prairie Conservation Plan, this weekly webinar series is devoted to dessiminating scientific research and monitoring associated with prairie grasslands and wetlands in Minnesota.
The PFLCC has utilized urbanization and climate change scenarios previously developed by USFWS, USGS, and staff at MIT. These stakeholder based scenarios initially covered half of Florida and were expanded to the whole state.
Webinar Hosts: Great Norhern and Southern Rockies LCCs
Presenter: Nina Hadley, Director of Project Creation, Adventure Scientists
This presentation was delivered by Molly Cross of the Wildlife Conservation Society, to the Southern Rockies LCC Four Corners and

Conservation planning is riddled with uncertainties, from biophysical factors such as climate change and natural disasters to socioeconomic variables, particularly political regimes and funding cycles.
Restored and remnant riparian habitat in arid western North America can be highly vulnerable to drought and changes in agricultural water management practices; yet, environmental flow deliveries have the potential to mitigate groundwate
The Pacific Islands offer a number of contrasts with continental North America that affect the development of LCDs. The Pacific Islands Climate Change Cooperative encompasses a huge ocean area peppered with small, unique islands.
Remotely sensed data are valuable for monitoring, assessing, and managing impacts on arid and semi-arid lands caused by drought or other changes in the natural environment.
Cynthia will discuss the collaborative conservation effort being undertaken through the Southeast Conservation Adaptation Strategy (SECAS).
Northern Latitudes LCCs Webinar Series: Disabled Vessel Drift in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands
The western Corn Belt is a regional hotspot for cropland expansion and grassland loss. To gain insights into these processes, a team from South Dakota State University collected data on farm operators and their land use decisions in eastern ND and SD through a mail survey.
This is the last of four webinars to share the results of vulnerability assessments conducted for regionally significant natural resources, some of which were identified by participants at two Adaptation Forum workshops hosted by the Southern Rockies Landscape Conservation Cooperative in 2016.
