ArcGIS Hub offers a tremendous amount of potential for engaging with the public and partners at all scales around natural resources initiatives, and bringing together the key resources needed by all these folks.  Check out this user story of how this approach was put into action with the leadership of the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC) for the 2020 update of the Montana Forest Action Plan.  Collaboration was critical to not only the support and success of developing the plan, but also ensuring this success for the long term.  Hub has been essential to this and as pointed out in the article: "Hub has enabled us to reduce the friction between data and the people that need to be informed by it. We’ve removed some of the technical knowledge and staff power needed to leverage and access geospatial information on Montana's forests."
