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.
