NFF Peer Learning Opportunities in Early April

The National Forest Foundation is pleased to announce three upcoming peer learning sessions. If you are interested in attending, be sure to register soon.



Evaluation and Adaptation in Collaborative Resource Management – A New Sourcebook

Thursday, April 11th, 2013  |  12:00 p.m.- 2:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time

We hope you can join us for a discussion about a newly-published sourcebook, Closing the Feedback Loop: Evaluation and Adaptation in Collaborative Resource Management. The sourcebook explores strategies and tools that collaborative groups use to systematically evaluate their work and adapt plans and management actions based on what they have learned. Presenters will share examples from the field, and we will discuss process tools from nine rapid assessments that are described in the sourcebook. This session builds on a previous peer learning session (May 4, 2012), held during the sourcebook’s development. We invite you to join the discussion, share other examples and discuss opportunities for integrating shared learning, systematic evaluation, and adaptive change into collaborative resource management.

 The sourcebook was developed by Ann Moote in coordination with a project team of the following organizations: Ecological Restoration Institute, Forest Guild, National Forest Foundation, USFS Ecosystem Services and National Partnership Office, Watershed Research and Training Center, and Sustainable Northwest.

Leveraging Resources: Log Values vs. Treatment Costs

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013  |  11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time

Please join us in this peer learning session on leveraging resources. Listen in to learn how log values can help offset the costs of treatment on restoration projects. Topics will include stream restoration, weeds, road obliteration and harvesting. The goal of this webinar is to increase the understanding of project costs and offsets to improve the odds of a successful project.

 This peer learning session is being offered jointly by the Montana Forest Restoration Committee and the National Forest Foundation.
