Past Collaborative Efforts

The Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests collaborative effort was initiated in September 2012 with a series of community meetings where citizens gained a basic understanding of the new planning rule and the forest plan revision collaborative process. Following the community meetings, a 3-day summit, facilitated by University of Idaho staff, was held in Orofino, Idaho. Interested citizens joined with cooperating agencies and Forest Service personnel at the summit to frame the collaboration effort. 

Collaborative work sessions occurred between November 2012 and May 2013 and February 2014 through May 2014. Interested individuals participated through monthly meetings and electronic comments to review and provide input on both the assessment and preliminary forest plan direction. All previous session information is posted on this website. There has been a lot of great information shared and discussed and we encourage you to check it out!
