0 Comment

A Public Lands Partnership Invitation
The Public Lands Partnership (PLP) is seeking individuals to work together as the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison (GMUG) National Forest continues their efforts on an Environmental Impact Statement focused on a Spruce Beetle Epidemic and Aspen Decline Management Response – (SBEADMR project)
The PLP is committed to a rich dialogue and concentrated efforts to increase public awareness and outreach, to better define and understand potential issues and concerns, and to clearly articulate objectives and process for public participation during implementation of the adaptive management approach to a landscape scale issue. The PLP is hosting a working group to meet during the next year to add value to the GMUG efforts on addressing the effects of spruce beetle and aspen decline. There are many community impacts that will occur due to these natural events including effects on public safety, wildlife, water, capturing the economic value of dead/ dying trees, recreation and tourism. In that effort, the PLP has scheduled a meeting on October 9th, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Pioneer Room of the Montrose County Fairgrounds. For more information contact Chris Miller, PLP Coordinator @ 970-640-7076 or info@publiclandspartnership.org
