At the end of the first year of Hurricane Sandy tidal marsh resiliency science projects, grantees met to exchange information and align efforts toward common goals for the next two years.
At the National Workshop for Large Landscape Conservation, where North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative staff and partners showcased research and tools, Interior Secretary Jewell praised the role of LCCs in the “epic collaboration” needed for large landscape conservation.
For Kevin Kalasz, the North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative puts Delaware’s coastal issues in perspective
Delaware’s Biodiversity Program Manager says the North Atlantic LCC provides regional perspective on one of the largest conservation priorities in his coastal state: sea level rise. “It’s been a great opportunity to really work on coastal conservation, understand the impacts of sea level rise in the region, and see how it all fits together.”
A bigger vision, a more diverse audience, a network-based approach to conservation. Just a few of the priorities that emerged during the Regional Conservation Partnerships Network Gathering in November, where North Atlantic LCC staff and partners offered insight on how to move forward on all fronts.
Long Island Sound partners awarded grant to promote sustainable practices in agriculture and use LCC tools to prioritize actions
With funding from a U.S. Department of Agriculture program, a project will use North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) tools to prioritize conservation actions related to agriculture.
The Vernal Pool Data Cooperative has constructed a secure spatial database to store vernal pool locations in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Now in order to ensure that the database serves as a comprehensive resource, the team is calling for data submissions from cooperators across the region.
In the New Year, the North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative reflects on progress in developing science and tools to meet regional conservation goals, and looks ahead to the critical next step: Delivering the science to partners who can use it.
A feature article focusing on updates to Connecticut's Wildlife Action Plan spotlights brook-trout modeling work by Ben Letcher at USGS.
After six years spent managing a long-term ecosystem monitoring program for a 44,000-acre landscape along the Atlantic coast, Megan Tyrrell is well equipped for her new role with the North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative.
The first phase of a scenario-planning project for wildlife management in Northeast boreal forests is underway, and includes the launch a monthly newsletter.

A summary report from a two-day scenario development workshop in the Adirondacks explores the regional response to the threat of disruptive climate change.
Featuring more than 100 data sets representing a suite of habitats, species, ecological processes, and environmental conditions across the Northeast, the North Atlantic LCC's Conservation Planning Atlas offers an invaluable conservation resource for regional partners. Now the Connecticut River Watershed Pilot's Core Team is putting this tool to use by creating and comparing maps to inform the project's Landscape Conservation Design process.
With support from the NALCC, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean (MARCO) will deliver decision-making tools to help coastal communities prepare for future storms.
How do changes in stream flow and temperature affect brook trout populations? Researchers addressed this question to get at a major challenge for ecologists: modeling how populations respond to environmental change.
During an annual gathering of agencies, non-profits, land trusts and organizations involved in regional conservation, North Atlantic LCC staff and partners showcased projects that have fostered collaboration around shared conservation goals.
Four years after their first meeting, members and partners of the North Atlantic LCC met to review progress, and discuss next steps for conservation design, science delivery and communications.
How can the mapping platform Data Basin help you make more informed conservation decisions? The webinar series offered by the Conservation Biology Institute provides practical insight on using this platform for planning and analysis. Here are some upcoming offerings:
Partners in the Connecticut River Watershed Landscape Conservation Design Pilot are thinking big picture even as they make detailed decisions about species and habitat goals for the watershed.
