Forest Collaboratives as Enduring Forms of Resource Governance. Over the past 20 years, there has been a proliferation of community-based collaborative groups throughout the western US. Federal, tribal, state, and local agencies as well as non-governmental organizations are forming collaboratives to address resource needs at multiple scales. Two studies are underway to explore the structure and function of forest collaboratives. One study examines forest collaboratives in Oregon, Washington and Idaho to understand the relationship between formal governance mechanisms and collaborative success. A second study examines social networks and community capacity in forest collaboratives in the Blue Mountains region of Oregon. Research Partners: Oregon State University Extension; Portland State University.
Human Ecology Mapping. This body of work explores how socio-spatial tools can be developed to collect information about human values, land uses, and forest benefits for use in forest planning. We began this work on the Olympic National Forest in Washington with a participatory mapping project to understand human-forest interactions on the landscape scale. We also helped the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest develop a protocol for collecting public use data on priority forest roads and destinations. A current project focuses on the Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests where we are developing a tool for gathering public information about special forest places. Research Partner: Portland State University, Institute for Sustainable Solutions.
Residential Location Decisions at the Urban-Wildland Interface. This project focuses on understanding the role of nature and public lands in shaping the values and residential choices of residents at the outer ring of King County (Seattle). Specifically, we seek to understand the factors that influence people to live in and move to suburban and exurban communities, the role of nature and public lands in their daily decisions, and the diversity of environmental values, attitudes, and behaviors held by suburban and exurban residents. Research Partner: Oregon State University.
Science, Planning and Decision-making in the Forest Service. Several studies have explored aspects of natural resource planning and decision-making. One study examined the role of values in resource planning and decision-making for riparian recreation. Another study investigated the interactions between scientists and managers and the role of scientific information in recreation decision-making. A third study explored implementation of the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) and the use of scientific tools and interdisciplinary teams for NEPA projects in recreation and travel management. Two current studies investigate the role of social science information in forest planning. Research Partners: University of Washington; Virginia Tech University; Portland State University.
Forest Service Partnerships. This research on Forest Service partnerships was developed in consultation with the National Partnership Office, Washington, DC. This multi-phased study seeks to identify the types of partners working with the US Forest Service, the diversity of work in which partners are engaged, the structure and function of partnerships, motivations to partner, and the benefits and challenges associated with partnerships. The study is currently in its third phase, a national survey of 13 national forests. Research Partner: North Carolina State University.
