WASHINGTON — Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced the selection of 15 advisory committee members to evaluate Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration proposals.
“The newly appointed Advisory Committee will serve as the eyes and ears for local and rural communities to ensure USDA provides healthy forests and waterways which will help create green jobs and economic prosperity for our communities,” Vilsack said. “The committee’s guidance will be invaluable in evaluating landscape restoration proposals that ultimately promote healthier, safer and more productive public lands.”
The Advisory Committee, which was established by the Forest Landscape Restoration Act, signed into law as part of the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009, establishes a collaborative process that relies on the best-available science to plan and prioritize landscape-scale forest restoration projects that benefit local economies. To make large-scale, long-term restoration projects feasible, Congress appropriated $10 million this year in a national fund that will supplement local resources and leverage non-Federal support for carrying out the projects under the CFLR Program.
