Project Description:

Natural disasters including fires and floods have had devastating impacts on the Russian River Watershed in recent years with the potential to create more disturbances in the future. Negative impacts would, however, be reduced by employing regenerative/”climate smart” land management principles and by educating local landowners on alternatives to using toxic chemicals, like pesticides. The focus of this proposal is to provide community education to residents, farms, and schools in fire prone Russian River Watershed areas to decrease future degradation to the watershed.
