- Policy Platforms
The Chairman’s Initiative of Montana Governor Steve Bullock, the "National Forest and Rangeland Management Initiative," creates a mechanism for states and land managers to share best practices and policy options for forest and rangeland management. The work of the initiative positions Western Governors to recommend congressional efforts to improve forest management and encourage effective collaboration throughout the West.
Invasive and noxious weeds pose an increasing threat to many of the nation’s public forests and rangelands. Wilderness Invasion is a short documentary that highlights the efforts being made by states, federal agencies, and private landowners to help combat these threats. The video was made with the support of the Wyoming Department of Agriculture, Nevada Department of Agriculture, and the U.S. Forest Service, among others. Watch it here.
