CCLC Products

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

Visit: CCLC's Interactive Conservation Mapper
Assess the landscape and its conservation, working lands, and ecosystem service values 

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.

Geospatial products:

Interactive Mapping on Data Basin

Connectivity with Core Areas:

Connectivity Restoration Priorities

Least Cost Corridors

Linkage Value of Every Cell

Connectivity Pinch Points

Relative Core Area Value

Connectivity without Core Areas:

Connectivity “Current Flow”

Normalized Flow

We will produce an easy to use guide for these products over the coming year.

CCLC Reports

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.

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.
