This chapter explains why conservation policy should focus not only on restoration and innovation but also on the ethics and the whole world around man, discussing lessons learnt from the Quincy Library Group experience. The Quincy Library Group cobbled together a 2.5 million-acre experiment in national forest management predicated upon ambitious ecological restoration goals that were also designed to maintain the local timber industry and to minimize fire danger. The Quincy experiment raised major substantive and procedural questions that could not be ignored in wedding ecosystem management concepts with local community concerns through collaborative processes. The chapter discusses how the promising ideas of ecosystem management and collaborative conservation are reshaping public land policy, and are powerful reasons, as reflected in the Quincy experiment, to seek a merger between the two concepts.

Keywords:   conservation policy, ecological restoration, forest management, timber, collaborative processes
