Southern Rockies Landscape Conservation Cooperative - Landscape Conservation Design

Resource Category: 
Riparian Restoration Planning

Landscape conservation design (LCD) is a collaborative, inter-disciplinary planning process that integrates societal values and multi-sector interests with the best available social and natural sciences to assess vulnerabilities, risks, and opportunities; and develops coordinated, spatially-explicit strategies that reduce land-use conflicts, enhance the adaptive capacity of the socio-ecological system, and maintains ecosystem function across the landscape for future generations.

The Southern Rockies Landscape Conservation Cooperative is currently developing landscape conservation design tools for the Four Corners Region, the Green River Basin, and the Upper Rio Grande. Please visit the linked pages for more background, associated documents, and links to data.  


RiversEdge West's

mission is to advance the restoration of riparian lands through collaboration, education, and technical assistance.
