LPCI succeeds through partnership.

Within the NRCS-led LPCI partnership, more than 25 agencies, nonprofit organizations, universities, and private businesses pool resources and know-how to conserve rural agriculture and provide habitat for native wildlife. While LPCI partners embrace a broad range of interests, values, and organizational missions, we act together from the foundation of our shared goal to conserve lesser prairie-chickens.

LPCI partners expand the field delivery, science, and communications capacity for lesser prairie-chicken conservation. Several partner organizations pool funding to hire up to 13 range conservationists and wildlife biologists based in strategic habitat areas throughout the Southern Plains states. These LPCI partner field staff work one-on-one with landowners who chose to participate in LPCI’s voluntary range conservation programs. LPCI partners also fund a GIS mapping specialist who provides mapping support to all partner field staff.

We’ve highlighted some of our partner organizations in our on-going Featured Friend series.
