Hi Everyone,

    The mission of the SALCC is to create a shared blueprint for landscape conservation actions that sustain natural and cultural resources.  To better understand the issues related to cultural resources, I am holding a call to begin a dialogue between stakeholders working in cultural resources and Landscape Conservation Cooperatives in the Southeast. It is important for LCCs to understand the needs of cultural resource managers working toward conservation in a changing landscape. Understanding the challenges faced today and anticipated tomorrow will help LCCs understand how they can be of benefit to the cultural resource conservation community.  If you would like to join us on the call or would like to nominate someone, please contact me and I will provide you with more information. Below are the attendees who I have confirmed thus far…
