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).

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.

Landscape Conservation Design brings people together around landscape-scale data in order to co-create strategies that conserve things we care about.
Presented by Ray Wright, University of Missouri
If you want to avoid some of the pitfalls associated with landscape conservation design (LCD) this webinar is for you! Learning how not to design resilient and sustainable landscapes is as important as learning how to design them.
The UW-Madison Arboretum’s Curtis Prairie, named for renowned UW-Madison botanist John Curtis, is often regarded as the world’s oldest restored prairie.
The United States and Mexico have engaged in restoration of the Colorado River Delta under Minute 319, a binational agreement on Colorado River management.
The Eastern Mojave is one of 3 pilot areas currently developing landscape conservation designs with the Desert Landscape Conservation Cooperative. This brief 1-hour webinar will introduce participants to the Desert LCC and the landscape conservation design process, key partners already inv
