Session 13: Landscape Approaches
The BLM Alaska has successfully implemented a restoration project on public lands and is using this experience to identify opportunities for other projects and establishment of partnerships with various stakeholders to achieve maximum benefits. Utilizing Resource Management Plans and existing laws to identify sites within high priority restoration watersheds, these partnerships will provide opportunities for high quality compensatory mitigation projects while supporting BLM's land management goals. The BLM will share details regarding the success of the restoration work completed to date, highlight the inventory work being conducted to identify sites, and share information about future projects and partnerships which would support multiple interests.
