Phase 2 Consultations

The Appalachian LCC is continuing our Landscape Conservation Design (LCD) by moving into Phase II of our consultations. In this next phase, the LCC and experts continue refining elements of the initial products from the LCD effort, as well as delve further into themes regarding aquatic integrity, biota, ecosystems, and representative databases of the region. Experts will help the LCC identify appropriate frameworks for assessing aquatic integrity, as well as conservation targets and threats to aquatic ecosystems.
