The Department of Forestry's new Adaptive Management Program's (AMP) mission is to determine if forestry practices are meeting their goals to protect natural resources through a science-based and transparent process. The AMP was established after changes to the Forest Practices Act from the Private Forest Accord and Oregon Senate Bill 1501. The new Division 603 Adaptive Management Program rules went into effect Nov. 15, 2022. The program provides regulatory certainty by establishing a transparent mechanism for scientific testing of rules, and then changing them if needed.
Two committees interact to evaluate rules over time. The Adaptive Management Program Committee (AMPC) guides the overall policy and process, and the Independent Research and Science Team (IRST) coordinates research in support of policy decisions. Both committees operate under the Oregon Public Meetings Law. This
