Fact Sheet: AppLCC Overview

Fact Sheet: AppLCC Overview

Today a range of monumental conservation challenges confronts the Appalachians. This includes the loss and fragmentation of natural habitats; disruptions in natural disturbance regimes; and expanding major land-use changes that are occurring on a grand scale. Climate change will further exacerbate these challenges. The magnitude of these landscape-level changes requires a shift from traditional local and single-species conservation approaches toward a more comprehensive scale to protect species, habitats, and ecosystems. The Appalachian Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) serves as a catalyst for conservation collaboration by providing the tools, products, and data, resource managers and partners need to address the environmental threats that are beyond the scope of any one agency.

Fact Sheet: Joint Venture 25 Year

Fact Sheet: Joint Venture 25 Year

Migratory Bird Joint Ventures are cooperative, regional partnerships that work to conserve habitat for the benefit of birds, other wildlife, and people. We are inspired by a shared vision of a North American landscape where diverse populations of native birds thrive. We believe the well-being of our nations depends upon the health of our landscapes and our wildlife. Joint Ventures are dedicated to achieving this vision through collaborative partnerships that work to protect the habitats that birds, and people, rely on for survival. We also support community-level efforts to safeguard natural spaces and reconnect people with the outdoors.

Fact Sheet: National LCC

Fact Sheet: National LCC

America’s landscapes and the fish, wildlife, plants and cultural heritage they support are increasingly impacted by land use pressures and widespread threats amplified by a rapidly changing climate. These threats are not just impacting isolated places or a single species, but affecting entire landscapes and multiple resources. The ability to effectively plan for and address these threats across landscapes is beyond the ability of any one agency or organization.

Fact Sheet: Riparian Restoration Decision Support Tool

Fact Sheet: Riparian Restoration Decision Support Tool

An innovative web-based tool - funded by the Appalachian Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) and developed by researchers from the U.S. Forest Service and the University of Massachusetts - is allowing managers to rapidly identify high-priority riparian targets for restoration to make more resilient in preparation for changes in future climate. The Riparian Restoration Prioritization to Promote Climate Change Resilience (RPCCR) tool identifies vulnerable stream and riverbanks that lack tree cover and shade in coldwater stream habitats. By locating the best spots to plant trees in riparian zones, resource managers can provide shade that limits the amount of solar radiation heating the water and reduces the impacts from climate change. This well-established management strategy will benefit high-elevation, cold-water aquatic communities.

Fact Sheet: Science Investments

Our work and achievements in 2016 and 2017 built upon the collaborative scientific foundation established in our earlier years, while continuing towards a vision of maintaining a landscape that supports the special biological and cultural resources of the Appalachians.  It’s helpful to reflect on the systematic advances made by our regional partnership in terms of its actions, decisions, and our investments—both in terms of the science but also in terms of strengthening the partnership through investment in shared resources.
