In order to meet all the requirements for a given funding entity we encourage landowners to schedule an initial site visit as soon as possible to determine the most appropriate agency and funding program. Many grants and cost-share programs are competitive, so we strongly encourage starting the process of seeking cost-share with a new or updated plan. In some cases, the District can facilitate landowner or operator implementation directly, in other cases we provide a technical assistance memo or an advanced resource management plan to ensure you have necessary the details and eligibility aligned to the funder requirements.
Outreach and Education
Our forestry outreach utilizes a variety of media, including our District E-Newsletter, online calendar of forestry related events, a catalog of local, regional, state, national, and international forestry educational organizations and resources. We also provide or participate in online and or in person workshops, presentations, for a variety of topics of interest to forestland owners, agency partners, and non-governmental organizations.
