Description: Resource managers worldwide face challenges in responding to expanding urbanization and its effects on forest resources. These challenges can be met head on if managers work toward: (1) comprehensive management of forest resources in urban and urbanizing areas, and (2)connection of urban people with forests and their management. Opportunities exist for accomplishing both of these goals through involvement of a broad spectrum of urban residents and organizations in collaborative management of forest resources in urban and urbanizing areas. Comprehensive and adaptive management of forests in urban and urbanizing areas is outlined, and efforts to involve individuals and groups in that management are discussed with examples from the Chicago, Illinois, area. Involving urban citizens in resource management can have implications for forest resource management across the urban to wilderness landscape.

Keywords: Urban residents, Forests, Collaboration, Involvement, partnerships
