Date:8/15/2012

WASHINGTON - Bureau of Reclamation Commissioner Michael L. Connor announced today 12 applied science projects will receive $1.2 million, and Reclamation will partner with other federal agencies and contribute $451,835 to applied science projects to benefit the Desert and Southern Rockies Landscape Conservation Cooperatives. This funding will be matched to provide more than $3.5 million for these applied science projects.

"Landscape Conservation Cooperatives bring science and technical expertise together and develop applied science tools for land managers to assess and adapt to the impacts of climate change," Connor said today. "The projects we are funding will help resource managers as they strive to develop effective water management solutions." Twelve projects received grants to meet the science needs of the LCCs. The entity must provide at least a 50-percent cost-share. The entities that will receive funding are:

  • Alamosa Land Institute
  • Arizona Game and Fish Department (2)
  • Arizona State University (2)
  • Colorado State University
  • Desert Botanical Garden, Inc.
  • New Mexico Office of the State Engineer
  • Northern Arizona University
  • The Nature Conservancy (2)
  • University of Arizona

In addition, Reclamation solicited statements of interest from other federal agencies for partnership on science projects in the LCCs. Seven projects were identified to receive funding. The federal agencies partnering with Reclamation are:

  • U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station (4)
  • U.S. Geological Survey, Fort Collins Science Center
  • U.S. Geological Survey, Southwest Biological Science Center (2)

LCCs are partnerships of governmental (federal, state, tribal and local) and non-governmental entities. The primary goal of the LCCs is to bring together science and resource management to inform adaptation strategies to address climate change and other stressors wi
