Welcome to the Climate Dashboard

Protected Lands are the cornerstone around which local, regional and landscape conservation strategies are developed. These lands are designated to preserve functioning natural ecosystems and act as refuges for species. Additionally, protected lands provide public access to recreation and preservation of natural historic sites. In the face of a changing climate, how will these lands be impacted?

The Landscape Climate Dashboard allows you to explore future climate projections and soil site sensitivity for federally held protected lands across the California, Pacific Northwest, Great Basin and Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) boundaries.

Getting Started:
