link DOWNLOAD FILE: Lessons Learned

In the spring of 2019, the Cherokee National Forest South Zone Collaborative Group finalized a set of recommendations and sideboards to be used in developing a Programmatic Environmental Assessment for restoration activities (the first for this area). Two important products came from this work:

>  The group's restoration recommendations are documented in "Cherokee National Forest South Zone Collaborative Restoration Recommendations for the Management of Off-site Pine in Dry Forest Communities."

>  A brief overview of the process and advice for other collaborative groups is captured in "Lessons Learned from a Collaborative Effort to Develop a Programmatic Environmental Assessment."
