2015 Forest Management and Watershed Science Symposium
The goal of this symposium was to better understand and promote effective forest management to enhance watershed function and forest ecosystem services such as resiliency to wildfire, water availability and habitat. Participants learned about results and implications from the newest research and had the opportunity to ask questions of top forest and watershed researchers in the West.
