Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration (CFLR) Project

The Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009 created the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration (CFLR) Program. The purpose of the CFLRP is to encourage the collaborative, science-based ecosystem restoration of priority forest landscapes. With partnership support, projects under CFLR aim to reduce the risk of severe wildfires, support local economies, create jobs and enhance forest and watershed health in eight states. Funds are made available through a combination of funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and annual appropriations.

The Fremont-Winema National Forest has collaborated with the Lakeview Stewardship Group to produce a comprehensive restoration strategy for the 662,289-acre Lakeview Federal Stewardship Unit in Lake County in Oregon. Originally selected in 2012 as one of ten new CFLR projects, the project received an additional $2 million this year to restore 859,000 acres important to rural communities across the Fremont-Winema National Forest.

The updated goal for the Lakeview Stewardship Group forest collaborative (LSG) in cooperation with the Fremont-Winema National Forest is to create a healthy, resilient, and functional forest landscape maintained with fire as an ecological process, while mitigating the threat of high severity wildfire to dry forests, fish and wildlife habitat, water quality, and the surrounding human communities.
