Workshop Goal:  This workshop will provide a venue for recreation and wildlife managers to learn about the state of science related to recreation trends and impacts; it will explore strategies and tradeoffs related to balancing recreational use and wildlife habitat at a landscape scale; and it will build a foundation for integrated planning. 

Workshop Outcomes:   

  • A common understanding of obligations related to current planning rules and direction, Department and Agency Strategic Plans, and Regional Priorities for both programs.
  • Identification of approaches for successful, efficient, and integrated planning.
  • Identification of opportunities to improve our ability to engage with, educate, and inform the public, with a shared interest to enhance the public’s attentiveness and minimize their footprint. 
  • Identification of critical gaps in our knowledge to help frame a research agenda.   
  • Establish and build relationships between recreation and wildlife managers.
  • Share and identify partnership opportunities.

Target Audience:  Forest Service and BLM employees in Oregon and Washington involved with wildlife and recreation management, science providers, public affairs officers and partnership coordinators, and others with an interest and passion for this topic!
