A survey of a random sample of cafeteria managers in public schools nationwide that participate in the National School Lunch Program. Includes the managers' perceptions on: the extent to which plate waste is a problem, the amount of plate waste by type of food, & reasons for & ways to reduce plate waste. This report determines whether the perceptions differed by their school's level (elementary, middle, or high school), their school's location (urban, suburban, or rural), & the proportion of their school's lunches served free & at a reduced price.

This workshop furthers the dialogue among scientists, land managers, landowners, interested stakeholders & the public about how individuals are addressing climate change in natural resource management. Discussions illustrated the complexity of global climate change & the need for managers to consider how the impacts of climate change will unfold across regional & local landscapes. The workshop offered examples of how managers are already responding to those aspects of the global climate change that they can see or perceive. While no comprehensive solutions emerged, there was an appreciation th

In 2003, over 250 managers, researchers, and other participants gathered for a series of workshops at Oregon State Univ., the Univ. of Arizona, and Colorado State Univ., near the largest wildfires of 2002. These Wildland Fire Workshops were designed to create an atmosphere for quality interactions between managers and researchers and to accomplish the following objectives: (1) create a prioritized list of recommendations for future wildland fire research; (2) identify the characteristics of effective partnerships; (3) identify types of effective information, tools, and processes; and (4) evalu

Over the last 15 years, spruce bark beetles have killed huge numbers of spruce trees, the dominant conifer across south-central Alaska. From 80 to 90% of the trees are dead in large areas on the Kenai Peninsula. Scientists have been working on many aspects of the spruce bark beetle outbreak, including new control methods, wood product opportunities, and spruce regeneration. Forest managers found conflicting community responses, which frustrated forest managers who felt they had reached out to communities, and forest managers¿ decisions and actions frustrated local community residents. ¿The K

In the 1970s and 1980s, wildlife managers, hunters, and forest managers had intense debates about how elk, mule deer, and cattle should be managed on public lands. In response, the Starkey Project was started in the Blue Mountains of NE Oregon. Starkey is a controlled, landscape-scale study at the Starkey Experimental Forest and Range. Four major themes were identified for the Projectżs first decade of research: Roads and traffic; Timber production and thermal cover; Competition with cattle; and Breeding efficiency of male elk. This report describes the Starkey Projectżs first decade (1989-9
