Background information:

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  This tool being used to collect nomination submissions was originally designed for funding opportunities and thus references funding in titles.  However, since this is only collecting nomination information - funding will not be distributed or awarded as a result of the submissions.

The Desert Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) is designing a process that will:

  • produce spatially explicit data and information about focal resources chosen by the Desert LCC partners (grasslands/shrublands, streams, and springs, including riparian and aquatic resources);
  • seek to understand the effects of climate change and other landscape stressors on natural resources;
  • integrate social, cultural and economic information to understand what these resources might look like in the future;  and
  • look at specific focal areas to develop collaborative adaptation responses that are useful and implementable by our partners.

Landscape design is the integration of societal values with ecological goals, using science based in landscape ecology to provide a variety of scenario plans that describe where conservation can best be achieved and how it relates to measurable goals. In 2014-2016,  the Desert LCC is engaging interested parties in determining design priorities, compiling and curating existing information and resources, determining what additional information, tools, or resources are needed, and developing plans for 2-3 pilot landscape conservation designs within the Desert LCC geographic area.


We are currently requesting nominations for pilot areas of interest to our partners.

Due Date: July 10, 2015
