 Closing the Feedback Loop: Capturing Shared Learning for Adaptive Management

Friday, May 4, 2012, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. Eastern (please convert to your own time zone!)

We invite you to join us for a peer learning session about an issue that many collaboratives struggle with: evaluating processes and projects and making changes based on what they’ve learned.This session is part of a project to explore shared learning processes and adaptive management tools that are being used by collaborative resource management groups. We will be presenting examples of collaborative group learning processes that lead to adaptive change, and we want to learn from your experiences as well. What have you tried? How did it work? What would you do differently if you could? Your input will help us organize the presentations and discussion and provide input to our final product, a sourcebook for practitioners.

Collaborative Touchpoints Around the NEPA Process

Friday, May 18, 2012, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. Eastern (please convert to your own time zone!)

What is the role of collaboration in National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) processes? What specific actions can the Forest Service and collaborative groups take at different steps in the process to achieve a widely accepted alternative? The National Forest Foundation and a team of community-based collaborators and the Forest Service are working together to develop a clear, concise and usable tool to help with this question. We can’t do it without you, however — please join us in this working session and help us get this tool right by sharing your ideas and experiences. We need your input!
