The 2021 William Main Seminar Series

The Intersections of Forestry and Human Health

The 2021 Seminar Series began in February and concluded in April.  Each session was recorded and is available for public viewing.

There is widespread recognition among Californians that past management practices have created forests in an untenable state. Forest health is compromised to the point that immediate, large scale intervention is required. But how do past, present and future management practices impact the health of communities in California? The 2021 William Main Seminar focused on the intersection of forest and human health, examining how management of California’s forests impacts the well being of individuals and communities throughout the state. This year’s series brought practitioners from forestry, academia, NGOs, wildland fire fighting and Tribal communities to Berkeley to share their perspectives on how past, current and future management of California’s forests has impacted the health and wellbeing of its population.
