Sometime ago, someone gave me a thick binder titled, "Public Land Owner's Manual" assembled by Carla Boucher.  I have been trying to find out where I can get additional copies, if there is an updated version, if an electronic version is available, etc.  A call to the UFWDA office suggested I contact Carla via email.  Several emails went unanswered.  Does anyone know about this "Public Land Owner's Manual?"

The book is being revised.

I am looking at making an "on-line" version that will be availalbe to UFWDA members.

In the mean time, if you have questions, please post them here as Carla and I do review the forums daily.

Please let me know if there's someway I might be able to help in getting the "manual" updated and online.  One of the biggest problems I've encountered is transfer of knowledge.  We get a lot of green (not like Sierra Club green, but like inexperienced green) volunteers who want to help, but they have no idea how to do it or where to start.  There's such a steep learning curve, that any material is helpful.  Another one of my many project ideas is to develop a curriculum for a "Public Land PhD Program."  The "manual" would be a big part of that.

That is partly why I have developed the seminar series.

The PLOM was a good initial start at laying down a framework in a practical format.

The next version is going to have more.  Carla has been sidetracked with the recent Bluewater Network lawsuit.  The UFWDA reorganization has kept us both occupied.  And, there have been a lot of other emerging distractions that take time away from the PLOM revison.

http://www.muirnet.net/NoteTaker/MUIRNet-Articles.ntweb/?3 is a good "primmer" on NEPA.

http://www.muirnet.net/NoteTaker/UFWDA.ntweb/?49 has the attendee notes from my seminar series.

I have a FOIA presentation in the works.  I have a "Trail Erosion" presentation in the works.  It uses part of one develped by Doug Barr for the Rubicon Trail Foundation.  I am pulling in some examples of erosion issues from other than the Rubicon region.

Carla and I are always on the look out for people with specfic skillls: paralegal, lawyers, biologists, etc.

Our effort is to raise the knowledge level of members about the legislative and legal issues having an impact on recreation.

I have a seminar this week end for the NEA4WDC.  I just gave a presentation to a meeting of different hunter groups in southern Cal about 2 weeks ago.

UFWDA will be hosting its United Land Use Conference at the Annual General Meeting in Grand Junction this summer.  I am working on the agenda for that.

There is a "steep" learning curve and we are trying to develop the material to help overcome it.  Our desire is to create webinars and podcasts of the material.  Those are an effort to provide the information in a fashion that is used by many people: the internet.

Fantastic, keep me in mind if you need some technical or editorial assistance on this project.  I think there's huge room for us to improve in our efforts of educating users.  I have seen many great improvements, and I'm excited to see the trend continuing.
