Sublette County Forest Collaborative
1. PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Involve diverse interests to learn and listen together in order to create recommendations to federal, state and private landowners and managers regarding fuel reduction and other forest management and restoration activities in Sublette County to protect wildland urban interface areas and watershed health while benefiting recreation, wildlife and livestock.
The purpose of the Sublette County Forest Collaborative is to provide the federal, state and private land managers with recommendations to assess and address the forest health issues on forests throughout Sublette County. It will accomplish this through mutual education; transparency in process; fostering communication between constituents and governmental agencies; and identifying, evaluating, and recommending options that meet the needs of the many stakeholders involved.
3. PRODUCTS AND OUTCOMES
The Collaborative will develop near and long-term strategies, recommendations and measurable actions that federal, state and private land managers can implement. Recommendations will be submitted to the land managers who can accept, reject, or modify the recommendations. Recommendations may also be shared with local governments, the Wyoming Legislature, and other interested parties and stakeholders.
