Welcome to ISF

Please join the Institute for Sustainable Forestry for our 2018 field season as we explore the dynamic processes that shape the mountains, rivers and forests of the Northcoast. We have built this program around three themes; Watershed health, fire adaptation and resilience, and geological influences on the ecosystem. These tours will highlight some of the most innovative cultural and technical solutions to our natural resource challenges and inform our understanding of ecological processes. Join the conversation as we work to implement a vision of a thriving future for forest dependent communities on the Northcoast.
