Symposiums and Workshops

Past Events

Rangeland Issue Workshop

A range workshop was held in Spokane, Washington on 28-30 August 2000 to address specific questions related to rangeland conditions, restoration options, and habitats for selected rangeland-dependent vertebrate species. The primary focus of discussion related to conditions on FS and BLM-administered rangelands. Rangeland experts with expertise in specific rangeland and wildlife areas were invited from universities, private institutions, and federal and state agencies; thirty were able to attend the facilitated workshop. The need for the workshop originated from discussions converning projected outcomes associated with the ICBEMP Supplemental Draft EIS for rangeland environments and associated species. Dr. Steve Bunting, University of Idaho, is taking the lead to prepare a manuscript for peer review and publication summarizing the workshop results.

Spokane Science Workshop

A 3-day workshop in Spokane, Washington, March 3-5, 1997, highlighted the scientific processes of the Interior Columbia Basin Ecosystem Management Project. It provided opportunities for participants to increase their understanding of the Project's methods, findings, and products.

Speakers included USDA Undersecretary James Lyons and FS Deputy Chief David Unger. Dr. Jack Ward Thomas gave the closing address. One day was devoted to concurrent science sessions that covered all of the scientific work undertaken as part of the Project. Opening and closing panels addressed broader issues including land manager perspectives and aspects of scientifically sound management strategies.
