This workshop will be the first gathering for forest collaboratives across the state of Oregon. The goals of the meeting are to:

  • Have collaborative members get to know each other and the landscapes where we work, and develop a network for future work together
  • Share examples, tools, and resources on innovative approaches to collaboration and forest management
  • Discuss how forest collaboratives can work with state and federal agencies and other partners, to innovate and increase the effectiveness of collaborative practices and forest management.

We are please to have USFS Region 6 Forester Jim Pena as a speaker at the workshop to talk with members of forest collaboratives. 

Who should attend?

Registration is open for members of forest collaborative groups and agency partners. We encourage a few members of each Oregon forest collaborative that work on Forest Service or BLM forests in Oregon to attend.
