This blog/website is partially sponsored by a National Forest Foundation (NFF) grant with funds provided by Region 5 of the U.S. Forest Service.

The NFF promotes the enhancement and public enjoyment of the 193-million-acre National Forest System.  By directly engaging Americans and leveraging private and public funding, the NFF improves forest health and Americans’ outdoor experiences.  The NFF’s programs inform millions of Americans about the importance of these treasured landscapes.  Each year, the NFF restores fish and wildlife habitat, plants trees in areas affected by fire, insects and disease, improves recreational opportunities, and enables communities to steward their National Forests and Grasslands.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.

The Alpine Biomass Committee (ABC) has also received support from the Amador-Calaveras Consensus Group (ACCG), the Sierra Institute, Calaveras Health Impact Product Solutions (CHIPS), and the Sierra Nevada Conservancy.
