  • Help public agencies expedite project implementation and completion by providing diverse input into project planning – helping to frame the projects to offer multiple benefits
  • Support recreational use of public lands and encourage expanded access
  • Strive to generate a unified voice on potential actions in the management of public lands
  • Look for those opportunities where management can balance social, economic, and ecosystem benefits
  • Help public agencies create projects and provide input on agency programs of work
