What do you know about the 2014 Farm Bill? Would you like to learn more about the new tools it offers, including a new NEPA categorical exclusion? If so, we hope you’ll join us during the next Partnership Network peer learning session.
The Agricultural Act (Farm Bill) of 2014 amended the Healthy Forest Restoration Act in several important ways, providing new tools for forests to address insect and disease threats, work collaboratively with partners, and accomplish accelerated restoration. In this upcoming peer learning session, speakers will focus on one element of the Farm Bill, the NEPA categorical exclusion (CE) for insect and disease treatments. Following an overview of the CE from the Washington Office, Tera Little, Project Team Leader for the Jasper Mountain Project on the Idaho Panhandle National Forest, will discuss the Jasper Mountain project. The Jasper Mountain Project was one of the first projects completed under the new authority, and led to many fascinating lessons and takeaways. Participants will also hear impressions and experiences from a partner who participated throughout the collaborative process.
We hope you can join this session!
