Who we are


  • Promote sustainable timber harvest and other economic development in Sanders County
  • 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
  • Offer follow-up and monitoring on completed projects

Membership and Participation:

Participation in the Sanders County Collaborative is open to any interested citizens.  A person may become a voting member by attending at least two meetings and submitting a written request to the Chair of the Collaborative indicating his/her desire to become a voting member and affirming that he/she supports the terms of the charter.  Members will sustain their status as voting members as long as they attend at least two-thirds of the meetings of the collaborative over the course of the previous 12 months.   Remote participation via a live telephone linkage will be considered full participation.

People may also participate in any of the meetings as non-member participants.  Employees of public sector land management agencies are encouraged to participate, but they may not become voting members of the collaborative to ensure independence of the collaborative.
