Maine Futures Community Mapper

The Maine Futures Community Mapper (MFCM) is a web-based tool that helps Mainers: (1)identify locations that are most suitable for future development, conservation, agricultural uses, or forestry; (2) identify potential conflicts and compatibilities between different land uses; and(3) envision their future landscape under different possible scenarios of change.

Ensuring a future where Mainers can count on vibrant communities with vital economic development, coupled with a sustainable natural resource base, requires thoughtful planning. We developed the MFCM in partnership with dozens of stakeholders from the economic development, conservation, forestry, and agriculture communities to assist planners, citizens, policy-makers, and scientists in planning for our collective future.

 

Find a Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCCs)

Find an LCC here. The 22 LCCs collectively form a network of resource managers and scientists who share a common need for scientific information and interest in conservation. Each LCC brings together federal, state, and local governments along with Tribes and First Nations, non-governmental organizations, universities, and interested public and private organizations. Our partners work collaboratively to identify best practices, connect efforts, identify science gaps, and avoid duplication through conservation planning and design. 

Managing the landscapes that provide our natural and cultural resources has become increasingly challenging. With the signing of Secretarial Order No. 3289, the Department of the Interior launched the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) to better integrate science and management to address climate change and other landscape scale issues. By building a network that is holistic, collaborative, adaptive, and grounded in science, LCCs are working to ensure the sustainability of our economy, land, water, wildlife, and cultural resources.

Conservation Corridor Toolkit

Landscape corridors are among the most important conservation strategies in the face of global changes such as habitat fragmentation, habitat destruction, and climate change. We aim to bridge the science and practice of conservation corridors.  Conservation Corridor will provide up-to-date findings from science that will inform applied conservation.  And, we will highlight new innovations in applied conservation, with the goal of guiding the direction of applied science toward management needs.
