Scientists, planners, educators, activists and managers working in the fields of forest and watershed restoration will meet in Fort Bragg at the College of the Redwoods, Mendocino Coast Campus, for a two-day Conference on restoration and management of public forestlands in the coast redwood region.
This Conference will examine the scientific case for the restoration of Jackson Demonstration State Forest, 50,000 acres of redwood timberland in Mendocino County owned by the State of California and administered by the California Department of Forestry.
The Conference will also explore the relationship between the forest and the surrounding communities, including considering alternative ways of determining the value of the forests to these communities and the people who live in them, as well as for the State of California.
