Initial Consultations

In 2015, a team of technical experts with knowledge of the species, ecosystems, and physiographic regions of the Appalachian LCC geography were assembled to advise in the development of the first iteration of the Landscape Conservation Design. This advisory team identified essential natural resources to represent in the landscape modeling work, capturing a mix of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystem types.

The approach used during the consultation and modeling process is described in the Phase I report: Interactive Conservation Planning and Design Phase I for the Appalachian Landscape Conservation Cooperative.

The Advisory Team was expanded in 2016 for the purpose of seeking additional input and recommendations for design refinements. Presentation materials and session notes from these consultations are accessible here:

Additional inputs were received through direct communications from consultation participants.
