5-Year Work Plan
This report represents the result of a 3-day Workshop of the Cooperative Steering Committee and Key Partners to produce a collaborative, integrated, and science-driven 5-Year Work Plan. It will serve as our guide in moving the Appalachian LCC forward as an organization and decision-making body charged to advance the efforts of the broader conservation community in addressing large-scale environmental and climate impacts. The Plan is divided into 5 Sections found below:
