You're invited to join us for the upcoming in-person Conservation Strategies, Vulnerabilities and Priorities Workshop! The Resource Conservation District of Greater San Diego County’s Regional Forest and Fire Capacity (RFFC) Program in partnership with the Southern California Montane Forest Conservation Strategy are hosting a workshop focused on furthering project planning in the Montane Forest regions of San Diego County.
The purpose of this workshop is to gather input for an all-lands treatment prioritization plan for montane forest lands within San Diego County. The result will be a map that can help to both prioritize treatment projects and provide direction for climate-adapted management by site. Participants and organizers will utilize a decision framework developed by the Southern Montane Forest Project and will provide input on their most important forest values, threats, and vulnerabilities of concern.

About the Southern California Montane Forests Project
The Southern California Montane Forest Conservation Strategy aims to engage partners across the region in advancing our collective understanding of the vulnerabilities and the challenges facing these forest and identify the opportunities and strategies for increasing forest resilience.
By working together, we can address the threats our forest face with an all-lands approach. Striving to develop a common understanding among resource and fire managers, policy makers, the science community, Tribal partners and other stakeholders regarding the threats to Southern California's Montane Forest and ecosystem services they provide as well as strategies to minimize those threats. This multi-jurisdictional project is a collaborative partnership among the Climate Science Alliance, U.S. Forest Service, Institute for Ecological Monitoring and Management at San Diego State University, and the Southwest Climate Adaptation Science Center. Through collaborative planning sessions, guided by stakeholder input, we will develop a scientific assessment and create a conservation strategy for southern California’s montane forests.
