TLC created a conservation management plan to recognize the immense value of the Rocky and Deep Rivers and develop strategies to protect their integrity in a changing landscape. We asked local government, state and federal agencies, and community members working in the area to weigh in on how conservation can maximize its impact. Pairing this insight from our partners with results from a series of spatial models, we made recommendations for long-term conservation success. Generous support for this effort was provided from The Conservation Fund and the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
