This collaborative project will work to promote Tribal resilience by developing knowledge and supporting actions that enhance persistence of cultural practices with a focus on preserving the ecosystems and plant species that are integral to Tribal communities.

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. 

Project Collaboration

Project and research components stem from the priorities identified by the Tribal Working Group, which provides leadership and guidance to determine the priorities, vision, goals, and deliverables of this project.


This project includes collaborative research efforts with project partners at the University of California Riverside and San Diego State University and key elements include:

Development & implementation of Intertribal projects to test strategies

Characterizing changes in habitat suitability of species

Evaluating potential impacts and threats to plant communities

Informing and exploring management scenarios, adaptation strategies, and restoration actions

Establishing research tools and resources to support long-term Tribal Working Group efforts
