So we have everything in one place, I'll add potential topics from yesterday's meeting: o Personal trails around Payette Lake near Bear Basin and inviting landowners and people/groups active in using these trails as well as planning the loop trail around lake. o Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) and Shared Stewardship, see treatments on private land and understand funding programs for treatment on private land via NRCS. Invite landowners, Soil Conservation District, landowners. o Revisit Mesa Fire and discuss how it changed fire behavior. o Wildland Urban Interface in New Meadows, discuss different types of treatments, where done and what look like, ways to link landowners to treatment funding. Involve landowners, NRCS, County.
I support Chris's suggested additional candidate topic. Our ability is pretty limited to treat some areas of the forest that need treating. Allowing PFC members to see an actual skyline operation first hand could help our future project recommendation process
I would like to see how a skyline system works. Has anyone talked to Mahon about why he's selling his equipment?
