Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Desired Conditions? CFLRP Five Year Reporting

Monday, May 13, 2013  |  2:00-3:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time

Who’s afraid of the big bad desired conditions? Not us!

You’re invited to join the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program Monitoring Network and National Forest Foundation in this upcoming webinar on developing desired conditions and ecological and indicators.

In order to fulfill the requirements of the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009, which established the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration (CFLR) program, the USDA Forest Service must submit a 5-year report to Congress that assesses whether, and to what extent, the program is fulfilling its purposes.

In 2011, the National Forest Foundation facilitated a meeting with Forest Service staff and agency partners to develop a suite of national indicators for the 5-year report. The result of this meeting was five draft indicators covering the purposes of the Act, including one covering ecological impacts. Guidance for the ecological indicator, which will assess the ecological outcomes of the CFLRP projects, was released by Deputy Chief Leslie Weldon in 2012.

As part of the guidance, project collaboratives must develop desired conditions that are specific to their collaborative group and the landscape and they are working on. This webinar will highlight three CFLR projects where collaborative members have been hard at work developing desired conditions and monitoring indicators to address the national indicators for wildlife, fire, and invasive species.

Participants will hear about the design and development process, and see examples, from representatives of the Dinkey Landscape Restoration Project, Uncompahgre Plateau Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Project, and Four Forests Restoration Initiative. There will be time to delve into the details, ask questions, and share experiences.
