Public and Stakeholder Outreach
Education to Increase Understanding of Management Actions
Interactive, hands-on education programs have been shown to help communities understand the benefits of properly managed land. For example, we have:
- Trained teachers about the role of fire in ecosystems so they can teach their students.
- Educated residents on how to be a “Bear Prepared” community to reduce human-bear issues.
- Facilitated workshops on Firewise community planning so that neighborhoods are easier to protect from wildfires.
Facilitation and Public Participation
Public input is often required in the planning process. When you have a complex land management situation, stakeholder input becomes critical to achieving management goals. We use a positive, solution-driven process to facilitate input from multiple agencies and management organizations as well as stakeholders and the public.
From simple meetings to complex management processes, we can work to create positive outcomes that meet management objectives and foster understanding.
