Shoutbacks to the U.S. Forest Service
Our July 23rd meeting was focused on constructive feedback to the Forest Service.
Keystone Project Scoping - Brett Crary (East Zone Forester) presented preliminary concepts for forest treatment projects in the Keystone vicinity. Peech Keller (Deputy District Ranger) and Cary Green (East Zone TMA) came to participate and listen. Brett provided maps and explained possible treatment types, locations, and purposes. Many of our members joined in the conversation and provided immediate feedback. Others completed and returned survey forms to Brett. Stay tuned. Let's see if our feedback makes a difference.
Backyard Monitoring - Greg Newman, PhD, Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory, Colorado State University joined us. Dr. Newman is the creator of Cit.Sci.org, a website dedicated to collecting and disseminating citizen science data. Newman explained how volunteer forest monitors can use the site to directly upload field data. Volunteers were keen to learn more and had lots of practical questions. Dr. Newman was joined by Ch'aska Huayhuaca (Center for Collaborative Conservation), Jim Collins of Colorado State University Extension Service and our summer monitoring intern Brenna Hassing.
