April 12th, 2018 from 9:00am – 4:00pm
Stewardship contracting is one of the newer management tools used by the Willamette and other National Forests. Stewardship contracting is a useful tool which allows federal agencies to keep timber revenue local and be reinvested into local roads and service work. The USFS and South Santiam Watershed Council are partnering on this workshop to help contractors understand what stewardship contracting consists of, how the contracting process works, and how to write a successful stewardship bid proposal.
Morning presentations will be followed by an afternoon field trip to visit the recently completed Rock Thin stewardship sale site and discuss implementation of stewardship contracts. Lunch and field trip transportation provided.
Special presenter: Tim Daugherty from Idaho Forest Group LLC
Mark Phillipp, Regional Stewardship Team Contracting Officer, US Forest Service
David Bishop, Forester, Willamette National Forest, US Forest Service
Best Western, 1100 Price Road SE, Albany, OR
