Dry Forest Restoration Technical Team

Convened by the Collaborativeʼs Executive Director,George McKinley, this multiparty team has worked tirelessly to refine and expand the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest and Southern Oregon Forest Restoration Collaborative 2011 Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program (CFLRP) proposal into a broader, more detailed, widely vetted and spatially explicit forest restoration strategy for the Rogue Basin. The strategy was recently submitted as a set of recommendations to the Oregon Bureau of Land Management Interdisciplinary (ID) Team for revised Western Oregon Resource Management Plans and a series of sessions with staff of Senator Wyden was held to inform emerging forest legislation. The strategy is expected to inform developing plan revisions for the Rogue-Siskiyou Forest as well, and should be completed June 2015.
