Improving landscape connectivity in the Great Northern
As part of the Great Northern LCC's charge to meet a strategic goal aimed to conserve a permeable landscape with connectivity across aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, members of its Advisory Team implemented a pilot project. The first phase of the pilot project included a workshop that was held this past April in Bozeman, Montana.
The workshop provided a platform for 60 resource managers to learn about and build upon foundational information on terrestrial connectivity. Participants became familiar with existing landscape connectivity science and map products, reviewed and learned from successful connectivity projects, and identified short-term priorities as a first step to develop a long-term strategy to maintain and enhance connectivity of the GNLCC region.
