From the Rural Voices for Conservation Coalition:
Working across public and private boundaries, or on “all lands”, is essential to address the ecological and economic challenges that communities in the rural West face. The Rural Voices for Conservation Coalition (RVCC) helps foster successful all-lands efforts through a multi-pronged approach of knowledge, tools and products, peer exchanges, and policy learning and actions. RVCC’s case study series illuminates examples of all-lands projects, including how effective partnerships are built and necessary programs, tools, and authorities are acquired and combined. This case study was developed with assistance from the Watershed Research and Training Center, and interviews with Cal Fire and US Forest Service personnel.
