The aquifer saturated thickness product is a per-pixel (250 square-meters) model representation of the combined fluid and soil matrix volume of water available in a given area, represented in units of linear feet. The prediction of available water is made using a network of over 9,300 monitoring wells located throughout the High Plains aquifer region. These wells are part of an annually updated long-term water-level monitoring study being conducted by United States Geological Survey hydrologists and other partners (https://ne.water.usgs.gov/ogw/hpwlms/). We used the source well depth-to-water data, as well as information on the base elevation of the aquifer (USGS Report : ofr98-393), surface elevation (NED-DEM),...
The crown (canopy) closure map was derived from three main sources. The entirety of the Montana portion was obtained from the USGS National Land Cover Database (NLCD) 2001 tree canopy layer. The mountainous portions of Alberta and BC were acquired from the Foothills Model Forest Grizzly Bear Project (FMFGBP). The areas of BC and Alberta not covered by the FMFGBP were modeled by extending the FMFGBP model with Landsat images from 2001 as well as a terrain model. The Crown Closure model was then clipped to forested areas. The Crown Managers Partnership 2001 land cover map was used to define forested areas. More details available in the data documentation.
The “We Need the Needles: Coordinating Action to Conserve 5-Needle Pine in the Crown of the Continent” workshop was held at the Crown Managers Partnership 16th Annual Forum in Fernie, British Columbia from May 15-17, 2016. This workshop was the fourth in a series of workshops organized by the Crown Adaptation Partnership (CAP), and was co-sponsored by the Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation (U.S.) and the Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation of Canada.

The Washington Connected Landscapes project has two-parts, and additional elements based onprior funding cycles (GNLCC FY10–FY 12):Part I. Informing Connectivity Connectivity Conservation Action under Current and FutureClimates for the British Columbia-Washington Transboundary Region. Conduct Transboundary Connectivity Analyses for the Okanagan-Kettle subregion andshare results. Identify transboundary climate-connectivity priorities.Part II. Testing Assumptions of Model Predictions in the Columbia Plateau Ecoregion. Develop a Washington-specific habitat model for sage-grouse based on occurrence datacollected in the Columbia Plateau and a suite of habitat covariates. Validate habitat models of focal species tied...

To provide information on what areas have a groupings of dead (red) pine trees which indicate a high likelyhood of green attack mountain pine beetle trees. This data is used to help focus ground survey work and is not 100% accurate. The current beetle year (August 15 to August 15) Mountain Pine Beetle aerial survey red tree locations. This data is used to help focus ground survey work and is not 100% accurate.
CCE Synthesized Watershed Data
This layer represents the roads for the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem. The data are a compilation from multiple sources. Credits: Agriculture (U.S.D.A.) Forest Service Region 1 National Forests, Department of Administration - Montana Transportation Framework, Government of Alberta - Sustainable Resource Development (SRD), Foothills Research Insitute and the Digital Road Atlas (DRA) of British Colombia. This dataset was compiled through efforts of Alberta Sustainable Resource Development regional staff as well as the Foothills Research Institute.
This layer shows aspin defoliators (large aspen torix and forest tent caterpillars) damage in the Crown of the Continent and a 50km buffer. Delineates outbreaks of the two focal species referred to as aspen defoliators (large aspen torix and forest tent caterpillar). Covers the CCE and 50km into the surrounding area from 2000 to 2007. This layer is a compilation from multiple sources, Bruce spanworm polygons were removed from Alberta data, focal species were extracted from USDA data.This dataset was developed by the Crown Managers Partnership, as part of a transboundary collaborative management initiative for the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem, based on commonly identified management priorities that are relevant...
This layer represents historic fire perimeters within 50km of the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem (CCE) from 2014 to 2015 within only Alberta and British Columbia. This dataset was developed by the Crown Managers Partnership, as part of a transboundary collaborative management initiative for the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem, based on commonly identified management priorities that are relevant at the landscape scale. The CMP is collaborative group of land managers, scientists, and stakeholder in the CCE. For more information on the CMP and its collaborators, programs, and projects please visit: http://crownmanagers.org/. This dataset was first published in May 2016. Note: There was not any public data available...

Case Study Sites for Prioritizing Mitigation of Road Impacts on Western Governors' Association Wildlife Corridors
These case study sites are detailed in the report accompanying this data layer. The case studies are intended to serve as examples of how some of the opportunities for diverse stakeholders to engage in the process of mitigating road impacts on wildlife that are described in the report might be applied on the ground, as well as other considerations that come into play in selecting sites for possible mitigation and designing mitigation solutions for those sites. Through these case studies, we illustrate potential opportunities for mitigation and partner engagement for each of the four alternative priority sets identified in this study.Wildlife carcasses recorded by Montana Department of Transportation, Idaho Department...
In this project, the Sonoran Institute, Center for Large Landscape Conservation, Montana State University’s Western Transportation Institute (WTI) and Future West investigated the potential impacts of future housing development on transportation to determine where increased traffic volumes will most likely impact connectivity for carnivores. The focus of this pilot study was Flathead and Lincoln counties in northwestern Montana. The results focus on mitigation for rarer species like bears and wolverines; it does not address or use data from road kill “hot spots” which are primarily deer and other common ungulates.This effort is unique in that it projects development into the future and identifies potential problem...
The Heart of the Rockies Initiative focuses its efforts on a region from southern Alberta and British Columbia to western Wyoming - the Central Rockies of North America. Within our working region are three distinct planning regions. The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE) is the southernmost area and surrounds Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, including parts of Wyoming, Idaho and Montana. The High Divide straddles the continental divide in Idaho and Montana. The Crown of the Continent caps the northern region, encompassing parts of Idaho, Montana, and British Columbia and Alberta, Canada.
