Data sets, webinar and workshop recordings and reports
The partners of our collaborative work hard to produce relevant and useful products to use in land management decisions. Explore our spatial mapping products below, plus find partner meeting recordings and reports.
Coastal Northwest Landscape Conservation Mapper
Other CCLC Spatial Products
The products below have been developed by our core and leadership team to represent our region in spatially-significant ways.
Conservation Priority Area Synthesis
This data layer represents priority conservation areas that have been identified in other efforts. Compiling this layer was a first step in developing a landscape conservation design at a regional scale. It includes TNC priority areas, CHAT priority areas, salmon strongholds, important bird areas and Partners in Flight priority areas.
Social Network Collaboration
These features represent areas of interest of conservation practitioners who have expressed interest in engaging in the broader landscape conservation design project. Areas of interest represent areas where organizations work on conservation. They do not represent all conservation efforts within the coastal ecoregion.

Assessment of Landscape Conditions and Conservation Gaps
In 2017, in partnership with WDFW, local SWCD and NGO partners, the CCLC produced a series of data-driven assessments of conservation value, partnership effort and working lands and ecosystem services values. These analyses were produced using the Environmental Evaluation Modeling System (EEMS). Links to model outputs:
Forest Conservation Value
Forest Ecosystem Services
Working Lands and Conservation Value
Stressors/Threats to Forest Systems
Habitat Connectivity Analysis for Western Washington
In collaboration with the Washington Wildlife Habitat Connectivity Working Group (WWHCWG) and Conservation Biology Institute, we have produced a series of analyses that describe general habitat connectivity throughout the region. We are currently developing models for individual species (to come in 2020!). We are also working to develop similar analyses with the Oregon Habitat Connectivity Consortium.
Connectivity with Core Areas:
Connectivity without Core Areas:
We will produce an easy to use guide for these products over the coming year.
The products below describe in detail the scope, targets, and audiences of the CCLC.
Conservation Plan Synthesis
This document represents an initial synthesis of conservation targets, key ecological attributes and criteria for spatial design through a thorough review of existing conservation plans and literature. This synthesis is meant to be an adaptive document that is edited based upon needs. The plan is to complement this ecological-based synthesis with knowledge and information related to community and human well-being.
The document can be downloaded here.
Social Network Analysis
A social network analysis maps out the who, what, and where of conservation collaboration, helping us to think more strategically about conservation at the landscape scale by identifying who entities collaborate with, and the conservation priorities, strategies, capacity needs, strengths, and geographic areas of interest

Assessment of Conservation Planning Tools and Recommendations for the CCLC
A common suggestion is to develop a web-based tool that supports landscape conservation. Several stakeholders have also noted that there are a variety of existing tools. This document, created by Lisa DeBruyckere of Creative Resource Strategies, LLC, represents a thorough assessment of existing conservation planning tools. The goal of this document is to point to potential gaps and potentials for collaborating and coordinating with other conservation tool developers.

Conservation Program Explorer webinar
Join us for the public launch of the Conservation Prorgam Explore on November 9th 2021.
The event will be recorded and can be found here a few days after it concludes.
Meaningful Incentives for Landowners
The Cascades to Coast Landscape Collaborative (CCLC) hosted events in Longview, Shelton and South Bend. These focused on conservation incentives and their role in sustaining small family forests over the long term. The events featured a talk highlighting a new, innovative regional incentive program called the Southwest Washington Small Forest Lands Conservation Partnership. It also included an open discussion on how to improve incentives for Small Forest Landowners.
