2005 WORKSHOP SYNTHESIS REPORT AND PRESENTATIONS

The Fish and Wildlife Service in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management convened a two-day workshop, titled "Managing Northern Spotted Owl Habitat in Dry Forest Ecosystems", at the Eagle Crest Resort in Redmond, Oregon in May 2005. This workshop addressed the complex issues of forest and fuels management within and adjacent to Northern spotted owl habitat in the dry forests.

A synthesis of the workshop was prepared by Fish and Wildlife Service and reviewed by collaborators from the Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and Oregon Department of Forestry. The Synthesis Report, below, discusses the details of the workshop and compiles recommendations from participants of the workshop on how to approach spotted owl habitat management within the dry forests.
