Building Resilience in the Sierra Nevada
A combination of firefighting efforts and past forest health work helped to protect historic infrastructure within Lassen Volcanic National Park.
The Eastern Sierra Climate & Communities Resilience Project has planned a landscape-scale forest health project and continues to build local capacity.
Today our Governing Board authorized 15 grants, using all $19 million provided to the agency from the Early Action Wildfire and Forest Resilience Budget.
There has been a lot of emphasis lately in forest management on building ‘Project Pipelines’. But what does this mean and why is it important?
