Plains and Prairie Potholes

Our Fundamental Objective:Increase conservation delivery by reducing scientific uncertainty associated with landscape level stressors which are important to our partnership

Accomplishments - first 18 months

  • Funded 27 projects (over 5 rounds of funding)
  • Formed Steering & Technical Committees (more than 2 dozen active members)
  • Draft Charter - soon to be finalized
  • Conducted Science Needs Workshop
  • Sci Webinars, Website, Initial Op’s Plan
  • Working to develop a seamless national network
  • Our Initial List of Urgent Needs / Issues
  • Agriculture
  • Energy
  • Climate Change
  • Regional Understanding of Habitat Condition
  • (spatial analysis)
  • Land and Water Management Planning
  • Water

We are ….“a work in progress”

DA/Science Needs Workshop Two separate events Science Needs workshop

Early RFP’s Broad Broad RFP (Data, Fundamental 6 Specific RFA’s(Ecological flows,

Information, TEK, tools/training Aquatic habitat, Energy, Rare Endemics, for resource managers Climate Change, Terrestrial Landscapes)

Later RFP’s more specific 1st RFA

Combination of immediate needs Combination of immediate needs

and long-term issues and long-term issues

Technical Team review/rank Steering Committee review/rank Addresse common impacts/threats

Scientific rigor, link to needs, unique, Transportable/Scalable Enhances planning decision making

Scalability/transportability, short term, Add to conservation/adaptation decision making Supports adaptive management

Management tie, leverages resources Add to building of partnership Enhances risk management

Address cross-partnership need Leveraging Test promising proof of concept

Unique approach or opportunity

“Connections” workshop upcoming


Refining/Improving Planning – year 2

  • Decision analysis workshop

Main focus of workshop

Where we

left things

ppp lcc connections workshop
PPP-LCC “Connections” Workshop

Terrific idea “borrowed” from UMGLLCC…

Moving from individual projects to an even more comprehensive view of the landscape – Will discuss targets, objectives, gaps.

Oriented on 4 themes (potholes, rivers, sage-steppe, human dimensions)

Bringing PI’s, Technical and Executive committee members together for the first time.

lessons learned

LCC’s must embrace principles of adaptive management

– We’re a process of constant improvement

Need for well understood review criteria

Identify those willing to do some of the “heavy lifting” - sub-group approach was helpful

Time management vs. embracing a sense of urgency

Science needs must drive the RFP process not the other way around. PPP-LCC

Integration of fun and opportunity to be creative is important to the success of the group.

Collaboration across LCC network important to the landscape approach…
