Our goal at the Center for Ecosystem Climate Solutions is to develop new land management solutions for California in order to mitigate the effects of climate change. These solutions will be aimed at enhancing carbon capture in our forests, reducing wildfire severity, protecting watersheds, and increasing social and ecological resilience across the state.
One outcome of our research will be an online decision support tool that will visualize critical ecosystem characteristics, quantify the benefits of past land management actions, and estimate the impacts of future projects.
To ensure that this tool serves the needs of our stakeholders and land managers, we are asking for your input. We want to know about how Californians view issues like wildfire and water supply, the multiple beneficiaries of wildlands management, data and information gaps, and major implementation barriers.
Please share your perspective on these issues in this brief survey. It should take no more than 30 minutes to complete. Your responses will provide our research team with valuable insights about what’s Californians find most important when it comes to managing our state’s wildlands.
Thank you for your contribution to our research! If you have any questions about the CECS survey, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
