The sagebrush ecosystem is the largest ecosystem type in the continental U.S., providing habitat for more than 350 associated fish and wildlife species. In recognition of the need to conserve a healthy sagebrush ecosystem to provide for the long-term conservation of its inhabitants, the US Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) and United States Geological Survey (USGS) developed the Conservation Efforts Database version 2.0.0 (CED). The purpose of the CED is to efficiently capture the unprecedented level of conservation plans and actions being implemented throughout the sagebrush ecosystem and designed to capture actions not only for its most famous resident, the greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus; hereafter,...

The Washington-British Columbia Transboundary Climate-Connectivity Project engaged science-practice partnerships to identify potential climate impacts on wildlife habitat connectivity in the transboundary region of Washington and British Columbia, and adaptation actions for addressing these impacts. This gallery includes data gathered or created as part of this project, as well as accompanying reports describing key findings for 13 case studies (including 11 species, a vegetation system, and a region).A primary goal of this project was to increase practitioners’ capacity to access, interpret, and apply existing climate and connectivity models to their decision-making. For this reason, many of the data layers included...

Depressional wetlands in the Columbia Plateau are valuable habitats because they maintain surface water into or throughout the dry summers. The source of that moisture—surface runoff from surrounding areas, or groundwater in local aquifers—may determine if these wetlands are seasonal, permanent, or semi-permanent. Helping these wetlands continue to provide habitat and other services requires understanding how these flooding and drying patterns (their hydrology) have changed in the past, and how projected changes in climate might affect them. The goal of this project was to develop wall-to-wall maps of wetlands across the region, coupled with detailed 30-year hydrographs of historical (1984-2014) fluctuations in...

Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Avian Data Center! Here you can find information resulting from a wide variety of surveys conducted by RMBO and its partners. Users can query out count data, occupancy results, density results, and generate maps of survey locations. You may want to read the Usage Tips for information and tips on running queries. If you’re a manager and wondering how you might be able to use this information please visit our Using Estimates page for more information. The Rocky Mountain Avian Data Center is designed to provide information for specific questions and therefore works best when users select multiple filters for a query.

The NorWeST webpage hosts stream temperature data and climate scenarios in a variety of user-friendly digital formats for streams and rivers across the western U.S. The temperature database was compiled from hundreds of biologists and hydrologists working for >100 resource agencies and contains >200,000,000 hourly temperature recordings at >20,000 unique stream sites. Those temperature data were used with spatial statistical network models to develop 36 historical and future climate scenarios at 1-kilometer resolution for >1,000,000 kilometers of stream.Temperature data and model outputs, registered to NHDPlus stream lines, are posted to the website after QA/QC procedures and development of the final temperature...

NorWeST The NorWeST webpage hosts stream temperature data and geospatial map outputs from a regional temperature model for the Northwest U.S. The temperature database was compiled from hundreds of biologists and hydrologists working for dozens of resource agencies and contains more than 45,000,000 hourly temperature recordings at more than 15,000 unique stream sites. These temperature data are being used with spatial statistical stream network models to develop an accurate and consistent set of climate scenarios for all streams. Temperature data and model outputs, registered to NHDPlus stream lines, are posted to the website after QA/QC procedures and development of the final temperature model within a river...

This is the primary access to the LC MAP Data Catalog tool, powered by ScienceBase. LC MAP was originally developed by the U.S. Geological Survey in coordination with the Great Northern LCC and is broadly available for ScienceBase users to share, access, and analyze common datasets. LC MAP was developed to aid resource managers share data across partners agencies and perform intensive geospatial analysis on a landscape scale. LC MAP allows users to discover, assess, edit, analyze, and model common data themes and provides powerful geospatial analysis capabilities of ArcGIS 10 and its broad array of extensions. More information about LC MAP is available at: http://greatnorthernlcc.org/lcmap.To access the LC MAP User...

The Southwestern Crown Collaborative (SWCC) brings together residents, interested citizens, business enterprises, and conservation organizations to consider creative solutions in the management of National Forests in the Blackfoot, Clearwater, and Swan River valleys. It is an open, independent, volunteer organization that encourages broad participation by all interested parties. The SWCC promotes sustainable forest management, the restoration of watersheds, science-based evaluation of management activities, and opportunities for nearby rural communities to benefit from these lands and waters. Our mission is to work towards a healthy and sustainable landscape in this region taking into account everything from local...

Temperature in aquatic ecosystems is a fundamentally important property that dozens of resource agencies across the Northwest routinely monitor. Significant amounts of stream temperature data have been collected during the last two decades, but strategic coordination of these collection efforts within and among agencies is lacking and many redundancies exist. Moreover, legislative mandates to maintain temperatures below certain thresholds, concern over climate change, and decreasing costs of data acquisition are only accelerating the amount of stream temperature data now being collected.A collaborative project by the USFS, NOAA, CSIRO, TU, and USGS funded by the Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative...
The High Divide Collaborative is an effective partnership of public land managers, state wildlife agencies, landowners, local community leaders, scientists and conservation groups working together to conserve and restore lands of importance for local communities and to protect ecological integrity at the landscape scale. Our region of focus straddles the Continental Divide along the Idaho-Montana state line and is the center of connectivity between the Greater Yellowstone, Crown of the Continent and Central Idaho. The Collaborative is facilitated by the Heart of the Rockies Initiative.
The Rocky Mountain Partner forum is one of four Partner Forums located in the Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GNLCC) geography. The GNLCC brings together managers and stakeholders from around this vast, 300 million-acre landscape to share information and work on mutual priorities. More information about the GNLCC can be found here.The Partner Forums bring together field-level managers, scientists, and other conservation constituents together to address the issues most pertinent to their region through conversation and information sharing. The Rocky Mountain Partner Forum has thus far used this opportunity to focus on cold water aquatic systems and ecological connectivity.
