Forest Service Announces Multiple "Forums"

The Forest Service recently unveiled multiple Intranet forums to help examine and evaluate policy and practice, "to exchange thoughts, ideas and knowledge on a variety of topics including planning, monitoring and inventory.” (FS folks can find these internal forums at http://frdev.ftcol.wo.fs.fed.us/imi/phpBB2/index.php.)

The agency also announced an "Ecosystem Management" public Internet forum dealing with Environmental Management Systems (EMS). This forum can be found at http://www.ecosystem-management.org/forum/.

We hope that Forest Policy - Forest Practice will be a compliment to these and other forums. By allowing different “communities of practice” to grapple with some of the same issues and cross-pollinating the efforts we hope to add value to all conversations. 

It will prove interesting to see how we do.
