SNAMP: Learning to Implement Adaptive Management in the Sierra Nevada
SNAMP (Sierra Nevada Adaptive Management Project) is a joint effort by the University of California, state and federal agencies, and the public to study fuels management of public forest lands in the Sierra Nevada.
The overall goal of this eight-year project is to provide the Forest Service and resource agencies with quality information derived from deliberate experimentation that can be used to improve future management decisions and reduce conflict.
In this exhibit, you will learn about the research activities of the 6 SNAMP Teams: Water, Fisher, Spotted Owl, Fire & Forest Ecosystem Health, Spatial, and Public Participation. Through a series of posters, photographs and videos (playing on select digital signage monitors throughout the library), plus scientific equipment, tools, and specimens, you’ll get a chance to experience what it truly means to study forest management.
