Have you wondered whether that plant you see on the side of the trail belongs in Alaska?  We are pleased to provide you with a new smartphone App to help you identify and report invasive plants throughout Alaska.  The Western Alaska LCC partnered with the Univ. of Alaska Fairbanks' Cooperative Extension Service, and the Univ. of Georgia's Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health to create this new App.  More information about the App and how to find it can be found here.  


​Science and Decision-Maker Needs

The ability to achieve our mission - providing science products that can help support conservation efforts - depends on successfully identifying what information decision makers need. Selection of topics for LCC focus takes place through workshops with decision makers and experts as well as Steering Committee deliberations. We are now determining our Terrestrial System focus for the federal fiscal years 2016-2017.  The LCC has an ongoing requirement that project proposals include contact information for decision makers who would utilize the proposed products. Learn more about LCC priorities and how they are determined on the Science page. ​ 

LCCs in Alaska

There are five LCCs in Alaskapart of an LCC National Network comprised of 22 individual LCCs that span most of the continent.
