About the Network
We are passionate about the remembrance of the intricate relationship of humans and landscapes. Honoring the deep knowledge and management practices of Indigenous stewardship on unceded California land, we strive to maintain the legacy effects of 10,000+ years of beneficial fire and ecological interaction.
