The LCC Network

LCC Network Brochure

The 22 LCCs collectively form a national LCC Network ( of natural and cultural resource managers, scientists, and interested public and private organizations—within the U.S. and across our international borders—that share a common need for scientific information and interest in conservation.

The nation’s natural and cultural resources and landscapes are essential to stabilize our quality of life and economy. Native wildlife depend on ecosystems that are threatened by land use changes and impacts such as climate change, drought, wildfire, habitat fragmentation, contaminants, pollution, invasive species and disease. The LCC Network recognizes that these challenges transcend political and jurisdictional boundaries and require a more networked approach to conservation—holistic, collaborative, adaptive and grounded in science to ensure the sustainability of America's natural and cultural resources.

As a collaborative, LCCs seek to identify best practices, connect efforts, identify gaps, and avoid duplication through improved conservation planning and design. Partner agencies and organizations coordinate with each other while working within their existing authorities and jurisdictions.
