The Northern Region Approach to Shared Stewardship

In the Northern Region, Shared Stewardship builds upon current cross-boundary successes achieved through Joint Chiefs Landscape Restoration Partnership, Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program, Good Neighbor Authority, and the Wyden Authority.

Moving forward, the Northern Region will:

  • Continue working closely with partners and stakeholders to discuss shared risks, common goals and desired outcomes.
  • Continue utilizing cutting edge technology and tools to conduct targeted investment planning.
  • Continue building innovation into our internal processes to accomplish more restoration work.
  • Capitalize on new cross-boundary authorities created by recent legislation.
