Conservation Partners With the Eastern Tallgrass Prairie
and Big Rivers LCC Unveil New Web Site
By Ashley Spratt
The Eastern Tallgrass Prairie and Big Rivers LCC recently released its newly designed public Web site http://TallgrassPrairieLCC.org to promote effective conservation through collaboration and sound science
The LCC facilitates dialogue among federal, state, non-governmental, academic and private interests to build a collaborative network of knowledge of natural resources challenges across a heavily agricultural landscape. That landscape stretches across our nation's heartland from southwest Ohio to parts of eastern Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota and Minnesota.
LCC partners are working together to bridge the gap between science and natural resources management while tackling broad reaching natural resources challenges like climate change, agricultural practices, water demands, urbanization, and socio-economic implications of conservation practices.
TallgrassPrairieLCC.org provides natural resources professionals and the public with access to shared conservation priorities, ongoing scientific research, funding opportunities, and educational resources, while offering continued transparency on behalf of the LCC community.
This network of knowledge equips the conservation community with the tools necessary to prepare for and address current and future stressors impacting the natural resources of this ecologically diverse working landscape.
