Additional Federal Conservation Initiatives and Resources

Additional Federal Conservation Initiatives and National Resources can provide resource management planning support.

Agency Support for Strategic Conservation

Highlights of federal, state and regional initiatives that provide funding, resources or support to assist land trusts with planning, management and public education projects.

Benthic Cover Data

Benthic cover data captures the location, extent, general character, and spatial relationships of biological communities in shallow nearshore areas. These data are useful for conservation planning, marine protected area sighting, and environmental monitoring by serving as a baseline for assessing potential climate change impacts to benthic environments.

Brownfields Area-Wide Planning Grants Program

Funding from Brownfields Area-Wide Planning Grants Program facilitates community involvement in area-wide planning approaches to Brownfields assessment, cleanup, and subsequent reuse.

CanVis

CanVis is a simple software program that allows users to visualize potential impacts of coastal development or climate change (inundation, SLR) allowing conservation planners and stakeholders to better understand the impacts of their decisions.

Climate Change Action in Coastal Habitats: Additional Resources and Websites

Resource list highlighting additional resources from federal agency partners addressing conservation in a changing climate.

Climate Change and Water

The Climate Change and Water website highlights U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) climate change response actions, regional climate impacts, and additional resources to address climate change impacts to water resources.

Climate Change and Water: In Brief

As the USFS’s Climate Change and Water: In Brief summarizes, declining water quantity and quality are becoming common issues, especially where our demands exceed supply. Growing water demands, in turn, put aquatic resources and other services at risk because less water is available to sustain them.

Climate Change Resource Center

The United States Forest Service’s (USFS) Climate Change Resource Center (CCRC) is a collection of forest management resources. It includes an extensive library, climate change and carbon tools, webinars and short courses by topic area and ecosystem, as well as an introductory webinar for new users.
