National Stewardship Contracting Virtual Meeting: Case Studies from Recent Stewardship Contracting Projects

Tuesday, May 2nd 1:00-2:30 EST

There is no cost to participate; Registration is required.

Why should you attend?
To learn more about how and why non-agency stakeholders engage the Forest Service in the design and implementation of stewardship projects on National Forests. This virtual meeting will review lessons learned from a sample of recently completed stewardship contracts and agreements from across the country; evaluating common challenges, strategies, and opportunities.

Topics we will discuss include:

  • How non-agency stakeholders engage in stewardship contracting projects and where their input is having the greatest impact;
  • Differences between projects with established collaborative groups and those that do not have established collaborative groups;
  • How the diversity of participants affects project success; and
  • How the scope and scale of stewardship projects are affected by public involvement.
