Sitka Conservation Society, Sitka AK c95 c97 (Room 4, 201 Lincoln St., box 6533, Sitka, Alaska, 99835, Phone: 907-747-7509, Fax: 907-747-6105, E-mail:info-scs@ak.net) The Society believes that our economic future depends on a healthy environment and a sustainable lifestyle. Those who care for this area must work together to protect its rich diversity and incomparable beauty. It uses GIS to aid in understanding and analysis of natural resources and to share knowledge with others interested in issues affecting the coastal temperate rainforests of Southeast Alaska. It maintains an archive of GIS databases for public use.

Skagit Conservation Database Consortium, Wa c99 (c/o Skagit Land Trust P.O. Box 1017, Mount Vernon, WA 98272, Phone: 360-428-7878, Fax: 360-336-1079, E-mail: trustmb@fidalgo.net). The Skagit Land Trust was organized in March 1992 with 31 Charter Members, as a way to help conserve a balance of natural resources in Skagit County for future generations. The Trust currently has over 450 members and has assisted in the protection of 2976 acres of land within the County. In order to create a unified database and provide conservation organizations access to a GIS the Skagit Conservation Database Consortium (SCDC) was started in January of 1998. The SCDC collects and analyzes environmental data for the conservation of natural resources within the Skagit river watershed. This data comes from the conservation and natural resource management organizations in the area, and assembled together facilitates the organizations in their conservation activities. Any organization involved in conservation activities in the Skagit valley is able to be a part of the consortium by signing the memorandum of understanding.

Skagit Watershed Council Wa e98 (407 Main Street, Suite 203-205, Mount Vernon, WA ,98273, Phone: 360-419-9326, Fax: 360-336-5936, E-mail: skagitws@nwlink.com). GIS Contact: Ben Perkowski. Formed in February 1997, the Skagit Watershed Council is a community partnership for salmon. The Council supports and endorses voluntary restoration and protection of natural landscape processes that formed and sustained the habitats to which salmon stocks (as well as other native aquatic and riparian dependent species) are adapted. By means of collaboration, technical assistance and education, the Council seeks to fulfill its mission, which is to understand, protect and restore the production and productivity of the Skagit and Samish watersheds in order to support sustainable fisheries.

Sky Island Alliance, Nm e97 (P.O. Box 41165, Tucson, AZ, 85717-116, Phone: 520-624-7080, E-mail: info@skyislandalliance.org). GIS contact: Cory Jones, cory@skyislandalliance.org.
Sky Island Alliance is an organization dedicated to the preservation and restoration of native biological diversity in the sky islands of the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico. These mountain islands are among the most diverse ecosystems in North America due to their great topographic complexity and unique location at the meeting point of several major desert and forest biological provinces.

South Carolina Coastal Conservation League, Sc, e98 (485 East Bay Street, P.O. Box 1765, Charleston, SC, 29402, Phone: 843-522-1800, E-mail: sccclbft@hargray.com). The South Carolina Coastal Conservation League is a grassroots non-profit conservation organization, founded in 1989 and backed by over 4,000 members. Its mission is to protect the threatened resources of the South Carolina coastal plain - its natural landscapes, abundant wildlife, clean water, and traditional communities - by working with citizens and government on pro-active, comprehensive solutions to environmental challenges. The Conservation League is presently involved in a GIS-intensive project entitled "The Greenbelt Education Project: Keeping the Country in the Lowcountry." The first step of the Greenbelt Project will be to develop a predictive model for urban development in the region over the next thirty years, based on current trends and data from the 1970's through the 1990's. For a look at their GIS modelling methodology, see the paper: "Modeling and Predicting Future Urban Growth in the Charleston Area.
