A Symposium for Scientists and Managers
June 21-23, 2011
University of California, Santa Cruz
Policies and strategies guiding the use and management of California’s coastal ecoregion are dependent on objective scientific information. Attention to this region has increased in recent years. At the same time, much new information has been collected. Each year the array of decisions affecting lands and natural resources in the redwood region carry more weight; evidence the recent interest in watershed assessment, fish and wildlife recovery efforts and silvicultural changes. This symposium is part of a continuing effort to promote the development and communication of scientific findings to inform management and policy decisions.
Audience: The symposium is intended for anyone involved in the research, education, management, and conservation of coast redwood systems. This includes RPFs, landowners and managers, community and conservation groups, land trusts, and policy makers.
For registered attendees: This Program Packet is available for your convenience. It is a draft and is subject to change. A printed copy will be provided to each participant at registration.
Update For South County Field Trip attendees: Please find a copy of the Conservation Blueprint for Santa Cruz County: An Assessment and Recommendations from the Land Trust of Santa Cruz County, as mentioned on the field trip, on the Land Trust of Santa Cruz County's website.
Announcement: The Land Trust of Santa Cruz County is partnering with Save the Redwoods League, Sempervirens Fund, The Nature Conservancy, and the Peninsula Open Space Trust, all in attendance at the symposium, to collaborate on a landscape-scale conservation initiative, the Living Landscape Initiative, which will include a significant redwood conservation element.
