Department of the Interior (DOI): Eastern Tallgrass Prairie & Big Rivers Landscape Conservation Cooperative(LCC)
The Eastern Tallgrass Prairie & Big Rivers Landscape Conservation Cooperative (ETPBR 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. They support biological planning, conservation design, prioritizing and coordinating research, and designing species inventory and monitoring programs. LCCs also have a role in helping partners identify common goals and priorities to target the right science in the right places for efficient and effective conservation.
The currently participating bureaus include the National Park Service, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
