CFLRP Monitoring

1. 2.

3. 4.

5.

Using a process of carefully owned, developed, and vetted questions Screening criteria to insure questions are practical, cost-effective, timely All collaboratives have well-developed monitoring questions Working through a process to insure how to best meet the four national ecological indicators Lakeview began implementing their monitoring plan in FY13

Key Challenges and Opportunities 





Whether CFLRPs can truly alter landscapes sufficiently to move them into sustainability is an open question we need to pay attention to Biomass utilization remains a challenge, especially in today’s energy market Monitoring the social aspects of projects is important – jobs and community well being matter!

Key Challenges and Opportunities 



Large fires can disrupt the best made plans (e.g., Barry Point affecting Lakeview 2012) We need to plan on large fires affecting our landscapes, and manage this to the best of our ability
