Fort Robinson State Park, Crawford, NE - June 21-22, 2011
LCCs have produced a wealth of informational documents, reports, fact sheets, webinars and more to help support resource managers in designing and delivering conservation at landscape scales.
The Upper Midwest and Great Lakes Landscape Conservation Cooperative geographic area transcends a variety of boundaries and borders. The LCC includes portions of Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and Vermont, as well as areas of Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. The geography includes deep water habitats, beaches, coastal wetlands, more than 35,000 islands, major river systems, boreal forests, and prairie-hardwood transition zones.
This document describes the process, criteria, and information used to develop a seamless national geographic framework in order to provide the spatial context for implementing landscape-scale conservation.
This guidance document explains how LCCs and Climate Science Centers (CSCs) will function to integrate science and management expertise to provide information on best management practices in order to support strategic adaptation and mitigation efforts across the U.S. and internationally.

This 2010 document was developed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to define the geographic framework for biological planning and conservation design.
This 2010 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service document describes the form and function of LCCs including their guiding principles, core capacities, organization, products and services and their relationship to Regional Climate Science Centers.
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.
In signing Secretarial Order No. 3289 on Sept. 14, 2009, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar directed Department of the Interior bureaus to stimulate the development of the LCC network as a response to landscape-scale stressors, including climate change.
