Tuesday, October 25, 2016 - Friday, October 28, 2016 at the Asilomar Conference Grounds

The State of California, four LCCs (Landscape Conservation Cooperatives), and the SW CSC hosted a joint gathering to foster state-wide collaboration on landscape-scale conservation.  The aim was to understand how our work (individually and collectively) contributes to a broader conservation vision for the region. The purpose of this inaugural meeting was to identify opportunities for collaboration on climate and landscape scale conservation actions.
