Linkage Networks’ Synthesis Analysis The focal species and landscape integrity approaches identify habitat concentration areas (HCAs) and core habitats, respectively, and areas of the landscape important for connecting them. As in the Statewide Analysis and the Analysis of the Columbia Plateau Ecoregion (WHCWG, 2010, 2012), we consider that a linkage network consists of the combination of all the HCAs and the linkages modeled for a particular focal species, or core areas and modeled linkages for landscape integrity (WHCWG, 2010). These networks are useful individually, informing decisions pertaining to maintaining and restoring connectivity for the particular focal species (or species considered similar enough in...

Formed in 2007, the Washington Wildlife Habitat Connectivity Working Group (WWHCWG) is an open collaborative science-based effort to produce tools and analyses that identify opportunities and priorities to provide habitat connectivity in Washington and surrounding habitats (https://waconnected.org). The WWHCWG began with a Statewide Habitat Connectivity Analysis, which highlighted several regions of the state that would benefit from finer-scale analyses. The group has since conducted analyses across many of those regions. The US Fish and Wildlife Service provided funding to develop habitat connectivity models for one of the remaining regions–Washington’s Cascades to Coast region. The goal of this project was to...

The Washington Connected Landscapes Project: Cascades to Coast Analysis produced the following geospatial data layers for landscape integrity: (1) a raster dataset depicting habitat suitability, (2) a vector dataset of core habitat depicting areas of high concentrations of suitable habitat, (3) a raster dataset depicting the landscape’s resistance to movement, (4) a raster dataset of cost-weighted distance depicting the permeability of the landscape for movement between core habitat areas, (5) a vector dataset depicting the least-cost paths between core habitat areas, and (6) a raster dataset depicting the least-cost corridors between core habitat areas.The data layers are provided in multiple file formats that...

We leveraged the Land Change Modeler within the Clark Labs’ TerrSet 2020 Geospatial Monitoring and Modeling Software package to produce vulnerability assessments and land use change products for several land use land cover types (TerrSet 2020, https://clarklabs.org/terrset/). TerrSet is an integrated geospatial software system for monitoring and modeling the earth system for sustainable development.We examined land use change and persistence across the southwestern US during an 18-yr window using 2001 and 2019 NLCD products reclassified into 9 categories. We investigated 15 potential variables to evaluate the top drivers responsible for the observed change. The targeted land use land cover categories included development,...

The Washington Connected Landscapes Project: Cascades to Coast Analysis Report is divided into three sections. Section 1 of this report contains four chapters. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to the project and the region. In Chapter 2, we provide an overview of the methodological approaches used to model connectivity across the Cascades to Coast region. This chapter focuses on providing an overview of the approaches and rationale for the decisions we made. The tools and methods used are similar to those used in the WHCWG’s previous work (WHCWG, 2010, 2012), and in related analyses (Gallo et al., 2019). Readers should refer to those reports and the documentation for the tools used (e.g. LinkageMapper; McRae &...
