Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCC) are self-directed partnerships between federal agencies, states, tribes, non-governmental organizations, universities, and other entities to collaboratively define science needs and jointly address broad-scale conservation issues, such as climate change in a defined geographic area. During this webinar, representatives from the four LCCs operating in the Southwestern U.S.  provided an overview of their regions’ program goals and describe how they work with land managers to leverage financial resources.
