Building a Landscape Conservation Foundation for the Northwest Boreal LCC
The week of November 18th, Northwest Boreal LCC is hosting a three-day workshop. The purpose of the workshop is to identify the components of a scientific framework for proactive landscape planning, especially in the light of climate change, and to explore different conceptual approaches to landscape planning. This invitation only workshop will address how to integrate social, economic, and cultural values, along with ecological and natural resource values, into the planning process. The goal is to develop a foundation for landscape planning and focused scientific inquiry that will serve as a strategic guide for LCC-supported activities over the next decade.
For more information, please contact us.
In spring of 2014, the NWB LCC will host a Science Workshop. The workshop will bring scientists, and land and resource managers together to develop research questions and statements to address LCC science and management information needs and determine what products can best fill those needs.
