    Description

    The Intermountain Adaptation Partnership (IAP) encompasses unique landscapes within the Intermountain Region of the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), from rugged mountains to deep canyons, from alpine snowfields to wild and scenic rivers (fig. 1.1). The area defined by the boundaries of the Intermountain Region contains both private and Federally owned lands, including 12 national forests and 22 national parks. Before Euro-Americans settled this area, Native American tribes occupied the land for thousands of years. With Euro-American settlement came timber extraction, mining, grazing, water extraction, and increased recreation to the region. Urban growth has increased significantly during recent decades, bringing new businesses and development that affect socioeconomic and natural environments.
