~ Ecological Workforce Training
Since 1999, we have trained hundreds of workers in ecological forestry, fire ecology, soils, wildlife habitat, plant associations, and watershed function, thus enabling them to carry out detailed ecological prescriptions and recognize unique situations in our diverse and complex ecosystems. This past year, a total of over 150 workers, timber operators and contractors were trained and employed in our projects.
