The Bureau of Land Management’s National Landscape Conservation System – an extraordinary, but under-recognized, collection of treasured public lands – is celebrating its tenth birthday with a signature event at the University of Colorado at Boulder. These uplifting landscapes, often home to rich and intricate ecosystems, have been designated for special care by the NLCS because of their remarkable scientific, historical, or cultural values. Managed cooperatively through unusual partnerships committed to sustaining their unique values, these landscapes are both places of inspiration and crucial undertakings in twenty-first-century conservation. The two-day event focused on learning about this great national resource and envisioning its future.
