Heidi Huber-Stearns, Cassandra Moseley, Nick Goulette

This working paper, developed in partnership between the Ecosystem Workforce Program and the FAC Net, explores how some organizations have developed local, cross-trained workforces to address wildfire risks alongside intensifying wildfire management needs. The paper profiles four organizations in the western United States that have found ways to successfully navigate the challenges of developing and maintaining local capacity for forest restoration and fuels work.
