About Us

North Coast Center for Biodiversity and Sustainability” incorporated a legal nonprofit, California Charitable Trust August 30, 1993. In March of 1997 it was renamed LEGACY – The Landscape Connection.

LEGACY-The Landscape Connection (tlc) has worked on developing a biodiversity conservation strategy for the North Coastal Basin (NCB) of California. We provide information for protection and restoration of native biodiversity in the Klamath Ecoregion.

LEGACY-tlc is a collaboration of community members, landowners, professional scientists, educators, researchers, and students united under the vision of creating an ecological-based, science-informed, and collectively built conservation strategy to reconnect the fragmented landscapes of our ecoregion.

LEGACY supports local conservation efforts by providing a regional and global perspective on biodiversity and sustainability issues in northwestern California.

An I.R.S. 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, our expertise and dedication to conveying the complex biological messages of our place, provide a regional context for various groups in their land management decisions. We work in cross-organisational, inter-agency alliances to build wildfire resiliency and restore indigenous land stewardship practices.
