Building Networks

Collaboration is key to global action

If we’re to facilitate change at the largest scales, we must work together to develop innovative networks for impact. We support thousands of scientists, policy makers, and community leaders by sharing experience and expertise through the professional networks we host and the regional and international collaborations we chair.

For the networks below (and several others), the Center provides strategic counsel, infrastructure, and organizational management, supporting their members and staffs to focus on the mission of effectively engaging and empowering landscape conservation practitioners and supporters around the world.

The Network for Landscape Conservation

Founded in partnership with the Lincoln Institute for Land Policy in 2012, the Network for Landscape Conservation (NLC) is building a rapidly growing community of practice of more than 100 organizations and 2,500 individual members. Participants are active in the field at different scales, managing landscapes from those as small as urban parks to continental transboundary ecosystems.

NLC also hosts well-attended forums, the findings of which guided Pathways Forward: Progress and Priorities in Landscape Conservation—describing action-oriented strategies for landscape conservation in North America and benchmarks to measure progress.

The Catalyst Fund, is a new five-year national grant program of NLC that will distribute at least 1.2 million dollars to landscape conservation partnerships over the next five years.

The Roundtable of the Crown of the Continent

Formed in 2009, the Roundtable of the Crown of the Continent brings together federal, tribal, regional, and local governments, NGO’s, business, and community leaders committed to protecting an 18-million-acre intact ecosystem that sustains thousands of species and diverse rural and urban communities. It is the only ecosystem in the contiguous U.S. that has maintained all of its native species.

By 2030, Glacier National Park is projected to lose all of its glaciers, fundamentally changing the hydrology of this continental headwaters. We’re addressing climate change through collaboration and shared learning across the landscape.
