2020 Washington State Forest Action Plan
Thursday, March 18, 2021 @ 9:00am – 10:30am
Presenter: Andrew Spaeth, WA Department of Natural Resources
DNR recently published the 2020 Forest Action Plan, enabling the state to access millions of dollars in federal funding and identifying forest health priorities for the next five years. The action plan will support critical work across the state – from addressing risk of conversion to ensuring rural fire districts have equipment to respond to wildland fires. Program funding also serves small forest landowners by providing willing landowners with technical assistance. The presentation will share an overview of the Forest Action Plan with a focus on action plan goals and priorities related to the work of Conservation Districts.
