This information will be summarize and made publicly available online for use by policy makers, land managers, environmental professionals, the general public, stewards themselves, and other urban resource management stakeholders. There are three phases to a STEW– MAP project: • Phase One (Census) is a census of stewardship groups in the target city or region, essentially putting together a master list of known stewardship groups and their contact information. • Phase Two (Survey) is a survey which is distributed to all of the organizations identified in Phase One to collect information about what they work on, how their group is structured, where they work, and what other groups they collaborate with. • Phase Three (Follow-Up Interviews) is follow-up interviews with key longstanding organizations identified during Phase Two to collect more detailed information about their organizational histories. A primary goal of STEW–MAP is to visualize stewardship activities across the urban landscape. The geographic information provided by stewardship groups on the survey (Phase Two) will allow the researchers to do a spatial analysis of where stewardship groups are working, identify ‘‘gaps’’ where little to no stewardship is being done, and provide locally relevant geographic information like what kinds of stewardship groups are working in particular places. This geographic information will be displayed on maps to show stewards, local land managers, policy makers, and other interested stakeholders how stewardship work is distributed across the region with the goal of encouraging collaboration, building innovative partnerships, increasing organizational capacities, and generally making stewardship efforts more effective. All of the information from STEW– MAP will help planners, natural resource decision makers, land managers, and the general public work across property jurisdictions, management regimes and political boundaries to conserve, protect, and manage urban natural resources effectively. It will also be used to enhance local resource management efforts by helping public officials, land managers, and civic stewards connect to local stewardship groups. STEW–MAP is being led by researchers from the Forest Service in partnership with researchers from universities and nongovernment VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:40 Sep 02, 2014 Jkt 232001 organizations. The exact makeup of the research team will vary from location to location where STEW–MAP is conducted. The Forest Service, Research and Development branch is authorized to conduct basic scientific research to improve the health of forests and rangelands involving State, Federal, Tribal agencies, and private landowners across multiple jurisdictions including in urban areas. The study is aligned with the U.S. Department of Agriculture policy of an ‘‘all-lands approach’’ to resource management, which ‘‘requires land managers to work across jurisdictions and land-use types, viewing forests landscapes as an integrated whole, both ecologically and socially’’ (National Report on Sustainable Forests, 2010). This alllands approach applies to urban ecosystems as well. Our project goals are consistent with the Forest Service, Urban and Community Forestry (UCF) program, which focus on urban forest ecosystems and the role of stewardship and trail connections to parks and public lands that promote health and sustainability for urban residents. This study seeks to identify opportunities for stewardship organizations to better collaborate and, thus, be more effective in the stewardship of urban natural areas. Due to local geographical and/or cultural differences, and to meet the needs of any particular collaborative effort, we anticipate that there may be changes to the survey and interview questions and perhaps in methodology to accommodate the unique requirements of individual communities; therefore, we are submitting this request for a Generic Information Collection Clearance for the information collection activities associated with the STEW–MAP program in order to afford us the flexibility of tailoring the information collection activities and instruments to each location, and to apply lessons learned from previous STEW–MAP efforts and locations to future efforts and locations.
