Sustainable management of fire-dependent forests. from F. Felix on Vimeo.

8-13-09: For Sagehen Speaker Series no. 26, Dr. Malcolm North discusses a new, multi-discipline publication from the Forest Service PSW, "An Ecosystem Management Strategy for Sierran Mixed-Conifer Forests".

Amazingly, it seems all the players are agreeing on this document. Wildlife, timber harvests, clean water & healthy forests: maybe we can have it all?

Interview with Andrew Sheldon

Interview with Andrew Sheldon. from F. Felix on Vimeo.

Andy Sheldon was the last Resident Biologist at Sagehen Creek Field Station. We button-holed him during his recent re-visit for a Plecoptera Society meeting.

Sheldon talks about Sagehen's wild early years, the value of elevational transects, & why field biology will survive the ascendancy of genetic analysis.

ARC student video.

From volunteer Susie Lippuner:
Some of you know that Yami (ARC grad 08) entered a national contest for teenagers (sponsored by Whole Foods) on greening her prom. She had a lot of initiative and very little time, and still managed to produce a video which won her fourth place. Check it out if you haven't already!!
