Earlier this year, Botany One, a weblog produced by The Annals of Botany Company, published a featured article, Protecting oaks doing conservation genetics with an open heart, highlighting the Climate Science Alliance and our collaborative efforts in advancing Tribal climate resilience through the Resilient Restoration project.


Featured in the article are project leads from the Alliance, Dr. Amber Pairis and Connor Magee, and partnering researchers Drs. Lluvia Flores-Renteria and Megan Jennings from San Diego State University. The project showcases a paradigm shift in climate adaptation efforts, with a strong emphasis on collaboration, reciprocity, and equal valuation for all ways of knowing. Through the guidance and leadership of Tribal Working Group members, the project has made leaps and bounds in supporting Tribal climate resilience in our communities and beyond.

The Resilient Restoration project, funded by the California Strategic Growth Council's Climate Change Research Program, is a collaborative effort of the Climate Science Alliance's Tribal Working Group, University of California Riverside, and San Diego State University. The goal of the Resilient Restoration project is to support our partners to advance adaptation and resilience activities through the development of knowledge and supporting actions that enhance persistence of cultural practices with a focus on preserving the ecosystems and species that are integral to Tribal communities.

 

Thank you to the Climate Science Alliance Tribal Working Group members for your leadership role in the Resilient Restoration project and laying out our vision, priorities, goals, and deliverables.

 

Resilient Restoration is supported by California Strategic Growth Council’s Climate Change Research Program with funds from California Climate Investments—Cap-and-Trade Dollars at Work.
