The South Central Fire Learning Network in Arkansas and adjoining states has spent 20 years cultivating a diverse coalition of restoration practitioners, scientists, policy makers and on-the-ground managers. With projects including two Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program (CFLRP) projects (together totaling over 1 million acres) the 80,000-acre Happy Bat Project, and leadership of the Shortleaf Pine Initiative, the South Central FLN is a national leader in collaborative restoration.
On this webinar, we will hear from some of the partners that have made this sustained success possible: McRee Anderson (TNC), Jim Mccoy (USFS), Randy Brents (Arkansas Game and Fish Commission), and Gabe De Jong (TNC). They will briefly discuss the history of the partnership, lessons learned from building and sustaining it, and an overview of the current state and future direction the partnership is seeking.
The majority of the webinar will be spent on an interactive panel discussion. Participants can pre-submit questions through this form or submit questions live during the webinar. Contact Laurel Kays (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any other questions.
