The Connecting Wildlands and Communities (CWC) project is led by an interdisciplinary team exploring how connected landscapes can support adaptation and resilience to climate change for both ecosystems and local communities in Southern California.
The project is funded by the California State Strategic Growth Council through the California Climate Investments Initiative and is a collaborative effort of the Institute for Ecological Monitoring and Management (IEMM) at San Diego State University and the Climate Science Alliance.
