LETTER: Reseeding policy of federal land management agencies

Western Governors sent letters on May 30, 2014, to Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack seeking clarification of post-wildfire and other natural disasters reseeding policy. The Governors expressed their dedication to ensuring the health of Western grasslands and forests and interest in collaborating with the federal agencies, writing, "We would like to work with federal agencies to establish clear and consistent disaster rehabilitation approaches that restore landscapes without creating monocultures or checkerboards. Increased state-federal collaboration on long-term restoration and research would be mutually beneficial." Read, download the Letter to Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and Read, download the Letter to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack
