Northwest Boreal LCC

BEACONs has partnered with the Northwest Boreal Landscape Conservation Cooperative (NWBLCC) to identify benchmark network options to support the implementation of Landscape Conservation Design. Financial support was provided by the NWBLCC and Wilburforce Foundation.

Benchmarks are reference sites or controls for understanding the response of biodiversity to human activity and that support the implementation of active adaptive management. Benchmark options have been identified for ecoregions intersecting the NWBLCC planning region, which includes Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, and British Columbia (Figure 1).
