Cutting Green Tape Fall 2021 Exchange






California Landscape Stewardship Network



The second Cutting Green Tape Exchange took place on September 29, 2021. During the two-hour session facilitated by Shawn Johnson, we examined progress we’ve collectively made towards the recommendations in the Regulatory Efficiencies report, engaged with leadership on topics important to the restoration community, and highlighted feedback from practitioners on how to continue increasing the pace and scale of ecological restoration in California. It featured welcoming remarks and updates on the interagency-led Cutting Green Tape Initiative from California's Secretary for Natural Resources Wade Crowfoot, Deputy Secretary for Habitat & Biodiversity Jen Norris, and more, including:

  • Sharon Farrell (Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy & CLSN Steering Committee)
  • Chad Dibble (CA Department of Fish & Wildlife) Phil Crader (State Water Resources Board)
  • Madeline Cavalieri (CA Coastal Commission) Matt Clifford (Trout Unlimited)
  • Shelana deSilva (SdS Consulting & CLSN Steering Committee)
  • Darcie Goodman Collins (League to Save Lake Tahoe)
  • Jessica Morse (Deputy Secretary for Forest Resources Management)
  • Patrick Wright (Governor's Wildfire & Forest Resilience Task Force)
  • Kellyx Nelson (CLSN Steering Committee)
  • Kristopher Tjernell (Department of Water Resources)
