Issue #177 (4 February 15) of the FLN Networker and its attachment. This issue includes news from landscapes, people and projects in Arkansas, California, Colorado and North Carolina, and a link to some highlights of the cooperative agreement's semi-annual report. It also has links to the SW Fire Science Consortium's call for nominations to recognize innovative suppression, the FAC Learning Network's first quick guide (on increasing watershed resilience), final planning directives for the Forest Service's 2012 Planning Rule, a blog about networks, an extensive report on the CFLRP that includes lessons learned for collaboratives, a study of beargrass that merges scientific and traditional ecological knowledge, a report on designing fuel breaks to protect habitat for greater sage-grouse, a white paper on administrative and legal review opportunities for collaborative groups, and, for fun, a 1915 Forest Service publication on fire protection. As always, listings are included for webinars, FLN workshops, prescribed fire training exchanges, and conference and workshop opportunities.
Attached is a Notes from the Field about a burn conducted by the Grandfather CFLRP project, which is part of a Southern Blue Ridge FLN landscape.
