Live Webinar -- March 19th, 2013, 10-11am --  Dial In specifics are TBD and will be sent out soon

The Regional Planning Team Social Scientist, Sonja Lin, and Economist, Mark Metcalfe, from the Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region will host a webinar on social, cultural, and economic conditions in the Sierra Nevada bio-region. This work is in support of an ongoing effort to revise land management plans on the Sierra, Sequoia, and Inyo National Forests using the 2012 Planning Rule. Currently, all three forests are in the “assessment phase” of plan revision. The Regional Planning Team is developing a Bio-Regional Assessment for the Sierra Nevada to provide the larger context for forest-level assessments and, eventually, plan revision. Subsequent national forests in California will undergo plan revision in the future.

This webinar will focus on information that has been gathered thus far on social, cultural, and economic conditions in the bio-region. You can  collaborate with us at http://livingassessment.wikispaces.com/ (Chapter 6). We will present highlights from this chapter, and answer your questions. Information added to the Living Assessment by April 8, 2013 will be used to draft the Bio-Regional Assessment Report.

There will be more opportunities for collaboration on the draft report.  We hope you will join us for this webinar.  Again, dial in specifics are TBD and will be sent out soon.
