Restoring Forests & Communities: Lessons from CFLRP
May 7, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Hosted by the National Forest Foundation
What can we learn from the experiences of the existing Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration (CFLR) projects? That is the overarching question that a group of five graduate students at the University of Michigan School of Natural Resources and Environment have sought to answer through an interdisciplinary analysis of the “second cohort” of thirteen CFLR projects designated in 2012. The team visited the sites over the summer of 2013, completing interviews with involved parties to understand site challenges and the strategies being used to respond to them. The National Forest Foundation helped guide the research team over the past year, and now we are all pleased to share the findings in a peer learning session. The session will focus on a cross section of the team’s findings and recommendations in the areas of collaborative structure, ecological restoration, economic benefits, and scale . We hope you’ll join us to hear from the research team and to reflect back on your own experiences, advancing our collective knowledge about collaborative landscape restoration.
To participate, you will need an internet connection and a phone line. Please note that this session starts at 12:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time on Wednesday, May 7, 2014.
