Appalachian LCC 2013 Annual Report

As an integral part of the National Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) Network, dedicated to integrating science information and tools with on-the-ground conservation action to address climate change and other landscape-scale issues, the Appalachian LCC is transforming the landscape conservation vision into action. The Appalachian LCC has taken great strides this year in serving as the catalyst for a collaborative network, assembling foundational data and information; providing decision support tools and products; supporting outreach, capacity, and enhancing the visibility of conservation actors; and staying relevant and evaluating progress. This report highlights these key achievements taking place across the broader Appalachian region and National LCC Network.
