Berkeley Forests operates five research forests throughout the state to develop and test appropriate management strategies for forested watersheds that will flourish under different climate change scenarios. Berkeley Forests is home to the oldest permanent forest plots (1915) and longest running forestry summer camp (1917) in the Western United States.
Given the importance of fire in many ecosystems, along with our dependence on and development into inherently fire-prone landscapes, we need to reach a sustainable coexistence with wildfire. Our goal is to develop and disseminate science-based solutions to wildfire-related challenges.
The University of California, Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC ANR) is seeking a Forest Stewardship Education Academic Coordinator I to develop and oversee a forest stewardship education program for private forest landowners to help them manage their forests for resilience from wildfire, insect outbreaks and other disturbances.
