Forest Health & Fire Resilience
In recent years, California has experienced an increase in large, catastrophic wildfires resulting in the destruction of millions of acres of forest and tens of thousands of homes. Lake County has been particularly impacted by this phenomenon. Since 2015, nearly three quarters of the land in Lake County has been burned by wildfire.
The Clear Lake Environmental Research Center (CLERC) is building a network of organizations and individuals to help combat the impacts of wildfire, promote positive regeneration of burned areas, and preserve the forest and woodlands that have not been destroyed by fire. Together the coalition is working towards creating a more fire resilient landscape.
