Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative Science Workshop

Related: Environment and Natural Resources

The Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative (WLCI) is a partnership among multiple federal and state agencies that aims to assess and enhance aquatic and terrestrial habitats in southwest Wyoming while facilitating responsible development through local collaboration and partnerships. In May 2007, the WLCI and the US Geological Survey (one of the WLCI partners) convened a workshop to inform the development of a long-term science plan for the region. Meridian Institute provided workshop design and facilitation leadership, working closely with a team of staff from the University of Wyoming’s Ruckelshaus Institute.


During the workshop, representatives from federal and state agencies, industry, and NGOs worked to compile and discuss research and management needs related to the potential impacts of energy development on wildlife, wildlife habitat, and related environmental values in southwest Wyoming. A summary report is available from the Ruckelshaus Institute or through Meridian by request. The workshop was held in Laramie, Wyoming, on the University of Wyoming campus.
