Co-Chair on Western Region Strategy Committee

I have been working on Cohesive Strategy (CS) development and implementation since early in Phase 2. The tenets of the CS are in alignment with my lifelong goals and objectives both personal and professional level. The following website is a good source of information on what folks are doing throughout the West in the name of the Cohesive Strategy.

Fire Adapted Community Project Management for Karuk Tribe

I have been fulfilling a project manager role for the Karuk Tribe in the Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network since inclusion as one of the first 8 pilots. It is great to see this program expand throughout the nation, and it is also good to see websites like the one below available to showcase some our Fire Adapted Community Activities.

Western Klamath Mountains Fire Learning Network

As a Co-Lead in this Fire Learning Network it has been quite the experience seeing our community partners go from complete gridlock when it comes to upslope management activities, to achieving understanding in zones of agreement that can be demonstrated in focal area footprints, moved to agreement in practice, and expanded throughout the broader 1.2-million-acre planning area. Please see the document linked below to learn more about how we reached our zones of agreement and identified our first three community based pilot projects.
