By assisting the agencies to bring balanced approaches to timber, wild ecosystems and recreation, the Panhandle Forest Collaborative (PFC) will help to contribute to sustainable social, environmental and economic viability within our region.

PFC Proposed Approach 
The Panhandle Forest Collaborative will focus on issues on the Idaho Panhandle National Forest, primarily within the Sandpoint, Priest Lake and portions of the Coeur d’Alene Ranger Districts, with the goals of reducing litigation, promoting sustainable operations, enhancing travel and recreation opportunities, maintaining infrastructure for timber, ranching and recreation, and conserving native ecosystems.

By building communication and connectivity between on-going local community efforts and county, state and federal agencies, we will work as a group to provide consensus recommendations for project and forest plans which address our goals.
