You are cordially invited to the August 3rd Joint WRP Natural Resources and Military Readiness, Homeland Security, Disaster Preparedness and Aviation Committee’s webinar on Integrated Rangeland Fire Strategy (Implementation of DOI Secretarial Order 3336).
This webinar will run from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm Pacific.
DOI Secretarial Order 3336 was signed by Secretary Jewell on January 5, 2015. The goal is to protect, conserve, and restore the health of the sagebrush steppe ecosystem and, in particular, greater sage-grouse habitat. While initial efforts have been focused on the Great Basin region of Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Oregon and California, lessons learned will be applied across the sagebrush biome.
This presentation will be conducted by Mr. Mike Haske and Ms. Karen Prentice. Mike is the Implementation Manager for Integrated Rangeland Fire Management Strategy and works for the Office of the Deputy Secretary. As the implementation manager, Mr. Haske is responsible for day-to-day status oversight and tracking, coordination and facilitation, identification of issues and resolving differences in support of the Action Plan developed to implement Secretarial Order 3336. Karen is the Healthy Land Initiative Coordinator, Bureau of Land Management and is heavily involved in development of some of the key deliverables called for by the Strategy. This webinar will cover:
- Background and purpose of the DOI Secretarial Order 3336 (https://www.forestsandrangelands.gov/rangeland/documents/SecretarialOrder3336.pdf)
- Key areas of emphasis identified in the Integrated Rangeland Fire Strategy
- Initial Successes and efforts completed to date
- An overview of one of the key deliverables, the Conservation and Restoration Strategy, designed to provide a strategic, multi-scale approach for prioritizing areas for management and determining effective management strategies across the sagebrush biome
- Next Steps
