Resilient forest ecosystems are a critical component of California’s future. To effectively combat the impacts of drought, catastrophic wildfire, and the compounding effects of climate change, we need forest management solutions. The Watershed Center is a leader in advancing community-based forest management. At the state level, we are leaders in biomass utilization and prescribed fire. We work with natural resource managers, government agency leadership and communities to advance programs that achieve forest resilience, mitigate climate change impacts, and improve community well-being.
