Appalachian NatureScape

Well-connected landscapes are necessary to sustain many of the natural and cultural resources important to the Appalachian region today and into the future. If these large connected areas are to endure and be resilient to impending environmental changes, it will require a collaborative effort involving many organizations and reaching across jurisdictional and political boundaries. The outcome of the Landscape Partnership Conservation Planning process and modeling is a dynamic ‘Conservation Blueprint’ or ‘Landscape Conservation Design’ called NatureScape. This is a dynamic or living design envisioned as an ongoing consultation with the conservation community – continuously incorporating new information and datasets as well as engaging subject-matter experts and committed stakeholders.
