Forest Service and Gatherings

As those of you who have been gathering for the last decade well know, the relationship between the United States Forest Service (USFS) and gatherers on the land has been contentious to say the least.   The last few years, the USFS has been willing to work more cooperatively with folks on the land and hopefully this direction will continue for this year's annual gathering.

To that effect, a long time gatherer from Montana has been in contact with the USFS and communications are starting.

This discussion is taking place through email and via the list serve "AGR."   If you are NOT being bcc'd on the correspondence, you can sign up for an account to the list server and read the archives or have the information sent to your email account.  To sign up for agr@welcomehome.org go to Welcome Home's Listserver registration page.

I would strongly encourage anyone who wants to get into the nuts and bolts of the gathering/USFS interactions, participate in the discussion by subscribing to the list server.

Let's continue to be the peace that we want to see in this world.
