Stewardship Pathways

Presented by the Climate Science Alliance Tribal Working Group, the Resilient Restoration's Stewardship Pathways Program invites Indigenous peoples from across Southern California who are interested in building or expanding a career focused on native plant restoration or wildland firefighting and monitoring to register for the informational sessions and fill out our questionnaire.

INFORMATIONAL SESSIONS

We will be holding informational sessions for each pathway on Monday, September 27th. Fire session will take place from 1:00 - 1:30pm PT, followed by the Plant session from 1:30 - 2:00pm PT. 

QUESTIONNAIRE

In the meantime, we require that you please fill out this short questionnaire which should take less than 5 minutes to complete to help us assess your specific level of experience. Your feedback will guide the types of training we will offer through this program.
