This Operations Plan describes the strategic direction of the Desert LCC. This is a visionary document and is designed to be fully implemented over the next 5 years. It will be reviewed annually and updated, as necessary, by consensus of the Steering Committee. This is one of three foundation documents for the Desert LCC. The Governance Document outlines the mission, goals, structure and decision making process, and the Annual Work Plan outlines specific tasks and funding for the ensuing year and metrics and timelines for monitoring the effectiveness of the Desert LCC.

The Great Plains Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GPLCC) is a partnership that provides applied science and decision support tools to assist natural resource managers in their efforts to conserve plant, fish, and wildlife in the mid- and short-grass prairie of the southern Great Plains. It is part of a national network of public-private partnerships — known as Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs)—that work collaboratively across jurisdictions and political boundaries to leverage resources and share science capacity.

This Charter, developed in June 2011, provides for mission, organization scope, steering committee composition and responsibilities, and other topics in order to frame the governance structure of the Great Plains Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GPLCC). During the formative stages of the GPLCC, an Action Plan (GPLCC Action Plan 2009) was drafted that developed early governance structure as well as priority habitats, species, research questions, and suggested staffing and direction for the LCC.

This preliminary action plan was developed in December 2009 as a starting point to outline the form and function of the Great Plains LCC.  During the initial assessment, the need for expertise in population modeling, genetics, biometrics, hydrology, and collection of monitoring data were identified as critical needs of the GPLCC.  We are working with our partners to determine how best to meet these critical needs. The Governance Section of this action plan was replaced by the Great Plains LCC Charter in June 2011.
