We hope you can join us for a discussion about a newly-published sourcebook, Closing the Feedback Loop: Evaluation and Adaptation in Collaborative Resource Management. The sourcebook explores strategies and tools that collaborative groups use to systematically evaluate their work and adapt plans and management actions based on what they have learned. Presenters will share examples from the field, and we will discuss process tools from nine rapid assessments that are described in the sourcebook. This session builds on a previous peer learning session (May 4, 2012), held during the sourcebook’s development. We invite you to join the discussion, share other examples and discuss opportunities for integrating shared learning, systematic evaluation, and adaptive change into collaborative resource management.

Presenters will include:

Ann Moote, author of the sourcebook and principal at Mamut Consulting

Mosé Jones-Yellin, Deputy District Ranger, High Sierra Ranger District, Sierra National Forest

Craig Thompson, Research Wildlife Ecologist, USDA Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Research Station 

Mark Kolinski, Alabama Program Manager, WildSouth

Mike McLane, Water Resources Specialist, Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks

The sourcebook was developed by Ann Moote in coordination with a project team of the following organizations: Ecological Restoration Institute, Forest Guild, National Forest Foundation, USFS Ecosystem Services and National Partnership Office, Watershed Research and Training Center, and Sustainable Northwest.

Please note that this two-hour session starts at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Thursday, May 14, 2013.
