Networks We Host

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.

United States Biosphere Network

The US Biosphere Network (USBN) is made up of 28 internationally recognized places across the continental United States, the US Caribbean, Alaska, and Hawai’i called biosphere regions.

Communities and organizations work together in biosphere regions to connect people and nature, from deserts to forests, grasslands to rivers, and mountains to oceans and coasts. Biosphere regions are voluntary and nonregulatory in their approach. Although they include state and national parks, national forests, national marine sanctuaries, and other conservation areas, they also focus on partnerships with private landowners and local communities where people live and work.

Together, we care for the beauty and value of our lands and waters and the benefits they bring to our communities.

The Roundtable on the Crown of the Continent

Formed in 2009, the Roundtable on 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.
