A growing trend in attempts to manage land for multiple interests is the formation of community-based collaborative conservation groups (CBCCs). Often created and led by rural ranchers, forest owners and other producers, they include alliances with scientists, conservationists, and agency resource managers all seeking common ground and pragmatic solutions to resource management issues. CBCCs are generally place-based, identifying site-specific goals and management practices for landscapes that cross jurisdictional and other boundaries. They recognize the knowledge and long-term commitments of local residents. Examples come from the Altar Valley Conservation Alliance in southern Arizona, the Diablo Trust in northern Arizona, the Malpai Borderlands Group in southern Arizona/New Mexico, and the Laramie Foothills Group in Colorado. Collectively, their greatest accomplishments may be the formation of partnerships based on trust in the face of legitimate differences and presenting a unified voice in natural resource management and decision-making.
