Stitching the West Back Together

The 13,000-acre Weaverville Community Forest in northern California is on land owned by the Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service and managed through stewardship agreements (one with each agency) by the Trinity County Resource Conservation District (TCRCD). Stewardship agreements provide for the joint accomplishment of work by an agency and its partner organization for the benefit of both. In the Weaverville example, the agreement is being used to improve forest health and reduce fire risk, create local jobs, and form strong local partnerships between the community and federal agencies. The TCRCD is responsible for developing and overseeing a comprehensive management plan for the forest; a steering committee ensures community representation with respect to project implementation, management policy, and strategic planning.
