The webpage on forestry water quality and best management practices (BMPs) at www.usabmp.net/ was established to provide a convenient national, regional, state, and local online service readily accessible for learning about educational and training opportunities, relevant legislation and regulations, water quality and BMP materials, and people and organizations to contact for help. The site consisted of three major components: general information, training and educational opportunities, and measures of effectiveness. In a cooperative effort among the National Council on Air and Stream Initiative (NCASI), National Association of State Foresters (NASF), American Forest and Paper Association (AF&PA), Society of American Foresters (SAF) and the University of Georgia (UGA), this webpage is being expanded to create a one-stop shopping site for information about forestry BMPs. A key component of the revised site is the inclusion of national and regional level research that has been conducted on BMP effectiveness. Other additions include details about monitoring projects, news and current events, funding opportunities, focus on agencies and organizations, upcoming meetings, and other topics as needed.
