Science ensures that we’re doing enough of the right things in the right places.

LPCI partners with independent researchers from regional universities to evaluate the impact of conservation measures designed to enhance lesser prairie-chicken habitat.

Using a range of scientific tools, from GIS to detailed field studies, these studies help ensure that LPCI conservation investments are strategically placed in the areas likely to have the greatest benefit for the species. These scientific evaluations also help partners refine management techniques for improving lesser prairie-chicken habitat.

Science is the cornerstone of LPCI and other NRCS Landscape Conservation Initiatives, ensuring that we are doing enough of the right things in the right places to achieve our conservation goals.
