2015 NRCS Joint Chiefs' Projects Selected

Collaborative, landscape restoration projects funded by the Joint Chiefs in 2015.
In 2013, the US Forest Service and the Natural Resources Conservation Service entered into a multi-year partnership, the Chiefs’ Joint Landscape Restoration Partnership, to improve the health and resiliency of forest ecosystems where public and private lands meet across the nation. Their vision is to restore landscapes regardless of land ownership, reduce wildfire threats to communities and landowners, protect water quality and supply and improve habitat for at-risk species.  Very Cohesive Strategy.  

Now in its second year, this unique partnership is working across traditional barriers to ensure more efficient and effective conservation work in these vital landscapes.  NRCS recently announced the 2015 Projects Selected for Funding

Of these, there are many projects occurring across the West, receiving many millions of dollars for their collaborative efforts. These projects build on existing projects and partnerships. By leveraging technical and financial resources and coordinating activities on adjacent public and private lands, conservation work by NRCS and the USFS will be more efficient and effective in these watersheds.

Stay tuned for more information about individual projects as they progress in the West.
