“Of particular value during the public involvement process, several collaborative groups representing a wide range of values and opinions provided constructive, consensus input. One group, Yosemite Stanislaus Solutions (YSS), includes a wide variety of local stakeholders including timber industry, environmental groups, government agencies and others. YSS fosters partnerships among private, nonprofit, state, and federal entities with a common interest in the health and wellbeing of the landscape and communities in the Tuolumne River Watershed. The group fosters an all-lands strategy to create a heightened degree of environmental stewardship, local jobs, greater local economic stability, and healthy forests and
communities.”
