Hear about four, of several, key elements in this video developed to capture some of the issues the Resource Management Plans (RMP) for Western Oregon project is exploring early in the planning process. This video touches on harvest practices for sustainable timber, stream protection for healthy water and fish, and the protection of clusters of habitat and older forests for spotted owls. Numerous other issues, such as recreation and fire resilience, will also be addressed as the project moves forward.

There are approximately 2.5 million acres in western Oregon that are part of the BLM-administered public lands included in the RMPs for Western Oregon. The RMPs for Western Oregon planning effort will determine how the BLM-administered lands in western Oregon will be managed to further the recovery of threatened and endangered species, to provide for clean water, to restore fire-adapted ecosystems, to produce a sustained yield of timber products, and to provide for recreation opportunities.

Why is the BLM engaging in this effort? Emerging environmental, economic, and social impacts are making the last plans unable to meet the needs of people, plants, and wildlife that depend on these public lands. Unlike national forests, BLM western Oregon public lands are generally not large contiguous blocks. A "checkerboard" pattern of public land is what makes up the federal lands.
