There are many groups and organizations within California and elsewhere that have an interest in oaks or related resources. Some of these, such as the California Native Plant Society, are non-profits that have a larger over-arching emphasis, but include California’s oaks in the native plants they seek to promote and sustain. Others, such as the International Oak Society, have a narrower focus, but a much wide geographic area of interest ( the world!). In addition to these environmental groups, there are a variety of government agencies or organizations, including other University of California units or programs, whose purview includes oaks. These include the two California agencies mentioned above in the Purpose section, as well as local entities such as Resource Conservation Districts, that include oaks among the resources they work on. Links to these various groups are listed below. Click on the group name and their web page will be displayed. In addition, other contacts are listed under several of the main subject areas in the left navigation bar (i.e on the Woodland Fires page). Click on the subject area name and web pages specifically related to that subject will be displayed.
