Collaborative Support

The Central Oregon Forest Stewardship Foundation was created to address the critical need for sustainable funding to support effective collaborative process and capacity.

We support effective and sustainable forest collaborative groups in Central Oregon, ensuring the utilization of best collaborative practices and cultivating resources to support their programs and staffing. This results in timely, effective, collaborative efforts that are equitable, inclusive, diverse, and lead to socially viable forest restoration projects.

Deschutes Collaborative Forest Project

The Deschutes Collaborative Forest Project (DCFP) strives to restore the Deschutes National Forests to a healthier, more resilient condition by developing balanced, science-driven restoration projects. DCFP members represent a wide set of views and values related to forest health, including environmentalists, the timber industry, city and county elected officials, recreation interests, and others.

DCFP is one of 20 collaborative efforts selected by Congress to encourage collaborative, science-based ecosystem restoration of priority forest landscapes.

Ochoco Forest Restoration Collaborative

The Ochoco Forest Restoration Collaborative (OFRC) aims to enhance the health and wellbeing of the Ochoco National Forest and communities in Crook County by supporting timely, effective planning of forest restoration projects. OFRC makes decisions using best available science and social values, ensuring robust, ecologically sound social agreements.

OFRC is working to reduce the risk of high-severity wildfire, support the local economy, and improve habitat.

We’re working together for forest health and resilience.

“What motivates me is getting the work done on the ground. I want to see forests in Central Oregon restored before they burn up.”
