Landscape scale forest restoration in the Zuni Mountains: Restoring what, to what?

For more than a decade the Forest Stewards Guild has been working with a diverse group of partners to restore resilience to forests in the Zuni Mountains of western New Mexico. What does a resilient forest look like and why might it have needed restoring to begin with? These are some of the questions that Matt Piccarello, Southwest Assistant Director for the Forest Stewards Guild, will answer in a presentation that will explore the history of land use in the Zuni Mountains and recent efforts to restore resilience to forests and the communities that depend upon them.
