Department of the Interior (DOI): California Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC)
The California Landscape Conservation Cooperative (CA LCC) is one of 21 LCCs established by Secretarial Order No. 3289, which focus on on-the-ground strategic conservation efforts at the landscape level. LCCs are management-science partnerships that inform integrated resource-management actions addressing climate change and other stressors within and across landscapes, linking science and conservation delivery. The currently participating bureaus are the Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS).
The CA LCC is a management-science partnership. Although staffed through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the decisions and direction of the CA LCC are made by the Steering Committee. The purpose of the CA LCC is to address the impacts of climate change and other stressors within and across ecosystems by promoting integrated science, natural resource management and conservation.
The geographic scope of the CA LCC extends from the San Francisco Bay coastline east through the Central Valley encompassing the Sierra Nevada. The northern boundary is defined by the foothills surrounding the Central Valley and the southern portion extends to lands between the Mojave Desert and the Pacific Ocean, including northern Baja California and numerous offshore islands.
