The Idaho Forest Restoration Partnership connects, informs, and supports collaborative groups working to restore the resilience of Idaho forests.  The Partnership is a coalition of six 501(3)(c) organizations; SAF Snake River Chapter serves as fiscal agent.

The partnership was formed to help strengthen collaborative forest restoration efforts across Idaho.  The partners have agreed to support four principles in a common vision for our forests:

1.In Idaho’s forests, strategic forest restoration is essential to address the current challenges posed by uncharacteristic wildfire, insects, disease and climate change.

2.Active management is needed in some areas of public forests to restore their resiliency.

3.A healthy forest industry is an important and necessary part of a restoration strategy to offset restoration costs and to provide jobs and economic stability in rural communities throughout Idaho.

4.Collaborative groups can provide useful advice and recommendations on forest restoration projects, through cooperation between citizens, including interest groups, elected officials, and pubic land managers

Boise Forest  Coalition & Payette Forest Coalition both accomplished a lot in 2011 and are forming working groups for 2012.
