Latest On The Conservation Gateway

A well-managed and operational Conservation Gateway is in our future! Marketing, Conservation, and Science have partnered on a plan to rebuild the Gateway into the organization’s enterprise content management system (AEM), with a planned launch of a minimal viable product in late 2024.

Fire is an essential force that has shaped life around the globe, but in many ecosystems today, the role of fire is severely out of balance. The Nature Conservancy works to maintain fire’s role where it benefits people and nature, and keep fire out of places where it is destructive. These pages contain information and resources related to the conservation of terrestrial ecosystems, especially those that are significantly affected by fire activity.

LANDFIRE​ (Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools) is a shared program between the wildland fire management programs of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service and U.S. Department of the Interior. We provide landscape scale geo-spatial products that support cross-boundary planning, management, and operations by providing agency leaders and managers with a common "all-lands" data set of vegetation and wildland fire/fuels information for strategic fire and resource management planning and analysis. The LF home website is the source of the data/tools; the Gateway site offers news and a thumbnail sketch regarding mapping and modeling resources, vegetation history, spatial data, current ecosystem conditions, scenario planning and customizing products.
