Forest Ag Program Review Update
First, a huge thanks to all of you who participated in the program review by completing the lengthy survey to capture your experience and perspective of participating in the Forest Ag Program. After facilitating four discussion sessions around the state with CSFS districts and analyzing the surveys from participating landowners, consultants, and county assessors, the program review team has learned a great deal about the status and complexities of the program. We found that there are common themes of areas to improve, most of which can be resolved with training and improving programmatic materials. I will also add that the surveys have been retained centrally for confidentiality purposes. Additionally, there will be no retaliation as a result of the comments provided. This program review is intended for the CSFS to understand how effective we are in administering the program and how we can improve. As we roll out enhanced program materials, resources, and continuing education opportunities, we welcome you to continue to provide constructive feedback so we can continually improve our service to you.
