What are Forest Collaboratives?
Sustainable Northwest highlights Forest Collaboratives in their latest newsletter. Check it out.
"Imagine a group of people standing in a circle in the forest – timber industry workers, environmentalists, county commissioners, small business owners, recreation enthusiasts, state and federal agency representatives. Those are all common members of forest collaboratives, and they develop recommendations to the Forest Service and other land management agencies to advance ecologically sound forest and watershed management that also benefits local communities and their economies."
