Please join the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests as we embark on an exciting new path, kicking off with this Collaborative Learning Workshop. 
We hope this workshop will be a catalyst for building community capacity to work together to realize shared goals - in any arena - and also to awaken and strengthen our communities' connection to our public lands. This forest needs you.

Participants will gain valuable ideas and skills that can be applied to solving problems and making decisions in collaboration with other organizations, governments, and communities.
By learning collaboration techniques together, we can build a shared language and establish mutual expectations. This workshop will feature collaboration experts from across the country and across perspectives - community members, academics, and land managers - to share their experiences and knowledge with you.

Beginning this fall, we will be reaching out to partners, stakeholders and community members through a series of conversations aimed at realizing a shared vision to address complex conservation challenges across a single large landscape on the Chattahoochee National Forest.

We will need your knowledge and insights right from the start in order to plan the right work in the right places for the right reasons.
This is something new for us. We are working to build our skills and capacity for collaboration, and want to help boost yours in the process, too. 
We encourage you to come to learn and grow - together with us.
