Cascadia Partner Forum: Furthering adaptation coordination and planning for species and ecosystems in the transboundary Cascadia landscape

Conservation Planning and Design, Decision Support Tools and Data

In 2015-2016, the Cascadia Partner Forum aims to continue work to meet our mission to foster a network of natural resource practitioners working with the Great Northern and North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperatives to build the adaptive capacity of the landscape and species living within it. Additionally, we seek to build on the work we have done to date contributing to the science planning of our LCC partners.

We seek to complete, review, and communicate on the work underway on priority issues identified by our partner forum including addressing conservation targets of the Great Northern LCC present in Cascadia such as wolverine, grizzly bear, salmon, aquatic connectivity, and terrestrial connectivity. Each of these issues spans both sides of the Cascades crest, touching on important conservation planning to inform both the Great Northern and North Pacific LCC’s. We seek to build our data library content and utilization by partners in conservation planning in both our publicly viewable Cascadia Partner Forum Working Space within the North Pacific LCC Conservation Atlas on Databasin, and the private LCMAP portal for layers that require special permission to utilize.
