LCC funding supports conifer mapping for sage-grouse conservation

Proposed conifer mappingSource: Intermountain West Joint Venture

This was one of four projects selected to receive Inter-LCC funding in the 2013 cycle. Approximately $1 million was made available to WAFWA by a coalition with the LCCs to oversee research prioritization, acquisition, and data sharing. This included funding for a project coordinator to conduct the research acquisition process, and to facilitate data sharing and access through the LC MAP Portal. Data will be made available here as parts of the project reach completion. - See more at: http://iwjv.org/news/partnership-funding-achieved-map-range-wide-conifer...

Thanks to a unique partnership of robust conservation organizations led by four western Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs), funding has been awarded to map invading conifers. Called “Sage-grouse hate trees: A range-wide solution for increasing bird benefits through conifer removal,” this project will provide conservation practitioners the tools to prioritize where trees should be removed to maintain sage grouse distribution and abundance.
