Development of a Forest Service R&D Tribal Engagement Roadmap.
Forest Service R&D is in the process of developing a Roadmap on Tribal Engagement that will help highlight and prioritize our efforts and raise the visibility of Tribal engagement for the Agency's scientists, political leadership, Tribes, and the public. A draft of the proposed roadmap is now available for informal review by intertribal organizations, and it is anticipated that consultation with American Indian Tribes and Alaska Native Corporations will occur in Fall of 2013.

Forest Service R&D's Tribal Engagement Efforts and the Agency's Tribal Relations Program.
This effort supports the goals and objectives outlined in the agency-wide Tribal Relations Strategic plan 2010-2013 and contributes to the broader Forest Service Tribal Relations Program. Forest Service R&D Tribal Liaisons maintains ties with the Office of Tribal Relations and Regional Tribal Relations Program Managers.
The Tribal Relations Program of the Forest Service developed a Tribal Relations Strategic Plan 2010-2013 to create beneficial outcomes for the agency and for American Indian and Alaska Native Tribal governments and communities. Consistent with Forest Service national strategic goals and objectives, this strategic plan identifies specific goals, objectives, and actions to guide the program through 2013.
