Northern Arizona State Conservation Partnership
A primary goal of the Northern Arizona State Conservation Partnership’s (NASCP) is to build partnerships to achieve milestones in bird-related science and habitat management.
NASCP objectives include:
- Continue to build and foster partnerships across interested agencies, organizations, businesses and individuals and connect those partners with bird related projects.
- Emphasize management within priority habitats and with focal bird species.
- Carry out management actions such as the identification and prioritization of specific habitat and science projects aimed at benefitting focal bird species. Where possible, emphasize landscape-scale actions to affect change.
- Pursue diverse funding sources and other eligible cost share resources to implement selected management actions.
- Illustrate and share successes and lessons learned, including technical information transfer.
- Assist with implementing the annual IWJV Capacity Grants Program designed to increase the field capacity for habitat conservation projects through partnerships and leveraged funding.
The NASCP functions as a component of the Northern and Northeastern All Birds Conservation Initiative Committees. These established committees’ membership comprises of state and federal natural resource agencies, non-governmental organizations and individuals who work together on various bird management issues in northern Arizona.
