Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program:

Maintaining Collaboration and Coordination, or “Herding the Cats”

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

2:00-3:30 p.m. Eastern Time (please note the time zone!)

Due to the large geographic size of Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration (CFLR) landscapes, the number of people and interests engaged with decision-making with regard to the restoration efforts in CFLR projects is often quite large.  Coordinating all of these people, plus the many meetings required to manage the different aspects of CFLR implementation and monitoring, present practical challenges.

In this peer learning session, we’ll hear from several CFLR projects about strategies they’ve used to maintain the collaborative nature of decision-making processes, keep communications flowing, and coordinate the many different people and entities involved. 

 Speakers include:

  • Patrick Shannon and Curtis Qual, Southern Blues Restoration Coalition
  • Josh Kelly, Grandfather Restoration Project
  • Phil Chang, Deschutes Collaborative Forest 

All you need to participate is a computer with an Internet connection and a telephone. Once you RSVP, you’ll receive a confirmation email with information about how to join the session (link):

 This is one of a series of peer learning sessions focused on the CFLR Program, sponsored by Forest Management of the Forest Service and offered in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.

  Remote Sensing Tools for Landscape Restoration:

It’s Not Just Searching in the Couch Cushions

Thursday, November 1, 2012

2:00 – 4:00PM Eastern Daylight Time/ 12:00 – 2:00PM Mountain Daylight Time(please note the time zone!)

Join the CFLRP Monitoring Network and the National Forest Foundation for a discussion of remote sensing tools available for use in landscape-scale restoration efforts.  Topics will include the tools and resources available to examine landscape-scale questions and desired conditions. 

There is a large amount of data and services available, ranging from free and easy to access to very expensive or hard to find.  We’ll hear from the Forest Service’s Remote Sensing Applications Center (RSAC), which provides support to Forest Service field offices; projects where LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is available and being utilized for landscape-scale questions; and LANDFIRE, which provides free wall-to-wall datasets and analytical tools related to fire and vegetation mapping.  Currently, these tools and resources are being used by different Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration projects. 

Project participants will share their experience and insights with us and we will engage them – and each other – in discussion to learn of other tools, processes, or analysis being developed across the CFLRP projects.  Please join us on the webinar and the conversation online at https://sites.google.com/site/cflrpmonitoringnetwork/  (thanks to Dana Coelho for setting this up and please see attached please find a how-to guide to the Network’s website to access the chat functions).

Information and the RSVP link can be found at: http://www.nff.wildapricot.org/Default.aspx?pageId=471105&eventId=548335&EventViewMode=EventDetails.

All you need to participate is a computer with an Internet connection and a telephone. This session is offered jointly by the National Forest Foundation and the CFLRP Monitoring Network.
