Cultural Resources Fellowship

Our Fellows serve as part of the professional staff of the Appalachian LCC. Given the breadth of the Cooperative membership (both the diversity of conservation practitioners' expertise and regional knowledge) the Fellow will work across many facets of applied conservation and natural resource management. The Nature and Society Fellow is based at Pennsylvania State University, Hamer Center for Community Design, under the direction of Dr. Timothy Murtha.

The Present and Future Possibilities of Landscape Scale Conservation: AppLCC Ethnographic Study Video of Presentation

The Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) program was created under a secretarial order to develop regional conservation partnerships – under the Department of the Interior – that aimed to coordinate regional conservation planning in response to climate change impacts. Because they were partner-driven efforts, each of the 22 LCCs followed a distinct trajectory and implemented diverse projects, meaning that there is value in exploring how specific LCCs, such as the AppLCC, approached regional conservation. This study assesses the successes, limitations, and impacts of the AppLCC, with the aim of providing insights for future regional conservation partnership.
