2011 Forest Management and Watershed Science Symposium

The goal of the Forest Management and Watershed Science Symposium held on March 30, 2011, 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.  The Symposium was well attended as presentations were given by top forest and watershed researchers:
