Abstract

The Monroe Mountain Working Group (MMWG) is a voluntary assembly of people addressing aspen viability at a landscape scale on Monroe Mountain of central Utah. A wide range of organizations and perspectives have been involved either as voting members or guests: environmental groups, grazing permittees, state agencies, county government, private landowners, and the USDA-Forest Service, which has the dominant decision authority on the landscape. The process has many similarities to other working groups that are dealing with local-scale natural resource management issues throughout the West, ranging from species conservation to wildfire risk mitigation. This presentation provides a brief overview of the process and structure of the MMWG in order to set the context for exploring the accomplishments and challenges the project has experienced.
