Restoring the West Conference – Presentation recordings from all past year’s conferences
Access conference presentations.
Overcoming land management and restoration challenges to achieve sustained yield of multiple uses on public lands has been the focus of the Annual Restoring the West Conferences for many years.
By law the U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and many other governmental agencies must manage their lands for “sustained yield” of “multiple-uses” like outdoor recreation, range, timber, watershed, and wildlife and fish “without … impairment of the productivity of the land”. Demand for these resources on public lands, and for ecosystem services and other previously unanticipated outputs, is increasing greatly. Management has gotten more complicated as uses and users have increased. At this conference researchers and managers share ideas about and examples of compromise, collaboration, and creativity that can improve management and restoration of public lands for sustained yield of the many resources we value.
