The Forestry & Natural Resources Advisor will implement an extension education and applied problem-solving research program in sustainable forest management on both private and public lands for Yuba, Butte and Nevada Counties.
The Advisor will provide expertise and leadership in Western Sierra forest sustainability and resilience which are at considerable risk from urbanization, wildfire, insects and disease. The work will address barriers to active forest management and topics such as range-wide forest fuel accumulation that has caused a growing high-priority issue of high-severity wildfire.
The Advisor will provide leadership, information transfer, and technical help to address increasing needs around recent fire events in the service area. The advisor will operate as part of a team of Forestry and Natural Resource Advisors located throughout the state.
This position focuses on the Western Sierra counties of Yuba, Butte and Nevada. There is opportunity and expectation to work collaboratively across counties.
