Geographic area and background

We are planning field trips and webinars as well as growing our list of publication briefs. If you have questions or suggestions regarding the CFSC-SN activities, please contact the team leader Hugh Safford (contact information to below). 

The CFSC-SN is responsible for the entirety of its namesake mountain range from the San Emigdio and Tehachapi Mountains at the extreme south to the range’s northern limit near Lake Almanor and the Plumas National Forest-Lassen National Forest boundary.  Areas further to the north are the responsibility of the CFSC's Northern California Region.

The activities of the CFSC-SN are implemented by a team of personnel from the US Forest Service and the University of California, led by Hugh Safford (USFS).  The team’s efforts are directed, in large part, by the CFSC-SN advisory committee – a group of 16 individuals who represent across-section of the Sierra Nevada’s wildland fire expertise including researchers, line officers, and outreach specialists belonging to federal, state, and non-governmental organizations throughout the region.  The advisory committee meets regularly throughout the year,  either by phone or in-person, with the exception of the peak fire season.
