Project Description:

Volunteer-driven river and lands stewardship activities on Giant Sequoia National Monument continue to preserve and improve the riparian habitat within CA wildlands through this project. Water quality, climate, high visitor use/low recreation services, policy decisions, wildfires. Everything is affected by the health of the mountain riparian habitat. The SJV benefits from intact ecosystems, yet don’t fully grasp the critical nature of what is at risk, what is inevitably going to change, and how to adapt to all of it. This project shows by doing and inspires protection through sweat equity.
