North Yuba Forest Partnership – 101

Sierra Nevada Field Campus, San Francisco State University

Join Biologists Ed Smith of The Nature Conservancy and Kat Perlman of the South Yuba River Citizen’s League for an Introduction to the North Yuba Forest Partnership (NYFP). The NYFP is a collaboration between nine agencies, non-profits, and a tribal representative which was recently funded by congress (~28.5 million dollars) to plan and implement various projects throughout the North Yuba River Watershed (NYRW) designed to increase the resilience of this landscape to catastrophic wildfires and promote the recovery of sensitive species.

This presentation to the interested public will be held in the dining hall of San Francisco State’s Sierra Nevada Field Campus located along Highway 49 (about 2 miles east of Bassetts Station). Park in the lot next to the highway, cross the bridge by foot, and head for the largest building straight ahead. Presentation will start promptly at 7:30 pm.

So far, the NYRW has avoided the kinds of wildfire conflagrations that have occurred nearby, for example, in the Feather River and American River watersheds. Learn how pro-active forest treatments at a landscape-scale have the potential to save our forests, meadows, waters, and human communities.
