The Southern Rockies Landscape Conservation Cooperative is a self-directed partnership formed by federal, state, tribal, and non-governmental organizations that collectively works to address pressing conservation issues at the landscape scale. Encompassing more than 127 million acres, our geography covers portions of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. We are part of a network of 22 LCCs focused on meeting the shared needs of partner organizations.
Our vision for the Southern Rockies geography is a landscape that supports and sustains desired conditions for five focal resources: cultural, mule deer and elk, native fish, stream flows, and the sagebrush-steppe ecosystem.
To achieve this vision, we enhance collaborative management actions through an adaptive management framework that answers vital questions about our conservation work: how, where, what, and how much. By addressing shared objectives and leveraging resources to provide scientific information and decision support tools, we inform actions that lead to desired on-the-ground conservation outcomes.
