About the Program

California’s headwater forests are at risk. Years of fire suppression, emphasis on short-term management priorities, weather extremes, and climate change have set the stage for a steep decline in forest resilience. The result is lost timber production, wildlife habitat, and recreational opportunities, and threats to our water supply. A panel of experts will explore management and regulatory reforms that can revitalize these forests and prepare them for a changing climate.

This research was supported with funding from the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation and the US Environmental Protection Agency.

Please register in advance. There is no charge to attend, but space is limited. Lunch will be provided.
