The Western Collaborative Conservation Network (WCCN) promotes and supports community-based collaborative conservation efforts that strengthen and sustain healthy landscapes, vibrant communities, and thriving economies.
Increasing population demands on limited resources, declining land management capacity, uncertain climate patterns, and unpredictable natural events are making the West’s natural resources, communities, and economies vulnerable.
The Western Collaborative Conservation Network connects partners across ten states in the West to advance the practice of community-based collaborative conservation. We do this by:
