Monitoring The Long Term Ecological Impacts Of New Mexico’s Collaborative Forest Restoration Program

The CFRP requires individual grantees to monitor the effects of their work during and after project implementation. However, following project completion, the New Mexico Forest and Watershed Restoration Institute is ideally positioned for monitoring all long term project impacts. In Section 1, we review the multiparty monitoring process employed for ecological monitoring of CFRP projects. In Section 2, we describe the methods used to conduct a meta-analysis of the 102 projects that were funded at the time of analysis and recommend 20 projects for long term monitoring. In Section 3, we present our final list of 20 recommended projects in the context of all 102 CFRP projects. We discuss recommended indicators and protocols for long term monitoring in Section 4, and present a timeline for long term monitoring of the 20 recommended projects.
