As part of process to establish the LCCs, Reclamation and FWS have held a series of outreach meetings to inform and engage potential LCC partners on the benefits of participating in an LCC. The outreach meetings also provided an opportunity for participants to express their concerns about the LCCs. The Desert LCC outreach meetings resulted in participation by a diverse group of participants including Federal agencies, various State agencies, tribes, universities, and NGOs.
