Landscape Conservation Cooperatives
The LCCs are partnerships of governmental (federal, state, tribal and local) and non-governmental entities. The primary goal of the LCCs is to bring together science and resource management to inform climate adaptation strategies to address climate change and other stressors within an ecological region, or "landscape." Each LCC will function in a specific geographic area and together will form a national and ultimately an international network. To learn more about LCCs go to www.fws.gov/science/SHC/lcc.html.
The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) and the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) are the co-leads, as well as partners, in the effort to establish the Desert and Southern Rockies LCCs. Reclamation and FWS are in the process of establishing Steering Committees for each of the LCCs. The Steering Committees will guide the LCC activities once they are established.
