Today on Insight we’re looking at the impact of forest management on California’s watersheds. In the studio, we’ll have Kim Carr with the Sierra Nevada Conservancy who can talk about two important papers published by the SNC this year. First, there’s the Mokelumne Watershed Avoided Cost Analysis, which showed that Californians can save a lot of money by paying for forest fuel load treatments now instead of waiting for the next megafire. Second, there’s the State of the Sierra Nevada’s Forests report that examines the ecological impacts on our forests and suggests where the most progress can be made in forest management. Also, we’ll be joined by Phil Saksa, a graduate researcher and Southern California Edison Fellow with the UC Merced Mountain Hydrology Research Group, part of the Sierra Nevada Research Institute.
