Partners in Natural Resources Conservation and Management
Celebrate a Year of Continued Growth and Progress:
Learn How LCCs are Bringing Value to the Conservation Community

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in partnership with more than 60 natural resource agencies and organizations across the Midwestern U.S. and portions of Canada, is proud to release 2013 Year in Reviews representing the highlights and accomplishments of Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) in our region.

Our 2013 Year in Reviews are a compilation of stories from our partners about collective success and progress in promoting effective conservation through collaboration and sound science across the northern Great Plains, Prairie Pothole Region, upper Midwest and Great Lakes, and the agricultural and urban communities of our nation’s heartland.

“The success of conservation in the 21st century depends on the conservation community’s willingness and ability to form strong alliances, engage non-traditional allies and make improbable connections probable,” said Tom Melius, USFWS Midwest Regional Director. “Through our LCC partnerships, we are focused on providing scientific information and tools that will help resource managers across jurisdictions make informed decisions that benefit fish, wildlife and people.”
