Southern California Chaparral Symposium: Understanding the Ecological Value of Chaparral Landscapes: Ecosystem Services, Human Management, and Future trends


Southern California is among the most biodiverse regions of the United States, and also home to millions of people living in close proximity to natural areas. Chaparral vegetation dominates the southern California landscape, but there is little public appreciation of the ecological value of chaparral, of the ecosystem services that chaparral landscapes provide, or current and projected trends in the sustainability of this precious and unique natural resource.

Join us for a three day workshop and poster session, followed by 1.5 days of field trips, dedicated to highlighting the importance of chaparral landscapes to the ecology, resources, and people of southern California.
