Project: Lake Tahoe West Restoration Partnership Project

Description: The Lake Tahoe West Restoration Partnership, a 60,000 acre multijurisdictional and stakeholder ecosystem restoration effort, is one of the most significant science based efforts in the Basin to restore forest health. The severe fires in California has resulted in increased pressure to rapidly complete the landscape planning. The initiative has ramped up development of a landscape scale restoration strategy and next year will begin project planning and the development of a triple environmental document to meet NEPA, CEQA, and Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s regulatory requirements. At the same time, the Conservancy will lead the development of a comprehensive monitoring plan. Similar efforts around the State, e.g., the Forest Management Task Force and Tahoe-Central Sierra Initiative, are looking to Lake Tahoe West to provide a template and guidance; staff connect with those efforts to ensure the State efficiently meets its forest management goals. Additional staff and staff time are needed to support the increased pace and visibility. Additionally, we plan to hire a consultant to facilitate monitoring plan negotiations and help write the plan.
