Improving the health of California’s headwater forests

September 20

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 practices and regulatory and legal reforms that can help build resilience in these forests and prepare them for the future.

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