|O nas||A collaborative approach to forest restoration to prevent catastrophic wildfire; sustain recreational opportunities; ensure jobs, quality habitat and clean drinking water.|
The Deschutes National Forest is important wildlife habitat, an economic engine for our region, a source of clean and abundant water, and a world-class recreational playground.
The Deschutes Collaborative is a group of diverse stakeholders bringing our community together to improve the health of our forest, supporting active restoration projects to reach common goals:
1. Reduced risk of catastrophic effects of wildfire
2. Improved wildlife and fish habitat
3. Thriving local businesses that depend on the forest
4. The well-being of those who work in, live by and love our forest
While the forest means different things to each of us, members of the Deschutes Collaborative Forest Project agree on this; we must be good stewards of the forest if we want it to be good to us, today and for future generations.
The aim of our Collaborative is to restore our forests to a healthier, more resilient condition through balanced, science-driven restoration projects. We are a volunteer stakeholder committee of 19 community members representing a wide set of views and values. Our group is one of 20 landscape restoration demonstration projects in the nation established by Congress to encourage collaborative, science-based ecosystem restoration of priority forest landscapes.
Our Collaborative includes experts on forests, watersheds, wildlife, fire safety, timber, natural resource policy, recreation and tourism, local government, and conservation. We are environmentalists, business people, professional foresters, research scientists, loggers, outdoors lovers, private landowners, elected officials, tribal members and government policymakers who see that unless we act now to make forests healthier and more resilient, the lifestyle and special places we all treasure are at risk.
And we have learned we can only get this work done together.
