UC Cooperative Extension is an education and outreach program for the 300,000 family forest landowners in California. The University of California Cooperative Extension Forestry Program provides research based solutions to natural resource related problems in the following ways:

  • Applied research
  • Publications
  • Meetings
  • Conferences
  • Workshops
  • Demonstrations
  • Field Days
  • Farm Visits
  • Video Programs
  • Facilitation

County Advisers are local advisers focused on delivering science based programs to serve forested communities. Advisers extend university resources and information to local communities and advocate community needs to University of California researchers and administration. For immediate help, please reach out to your Local Forest Adviser, or ask an expert in the Cooperative Extension network.

Protecting your home from wildfire and fire safe home workshops provide homeowners in the wildland-urban interface information about fuels treatments, landscaping, and structure protection from wildfire.


Forestry Institute for Teachers brings K-12 teachers from throughout California to Shasta County for a week-long crash course in forest ecology and management. The teachers develop curriculum for their students in other communities far removed from- but heavily dependent upon- water, air, and products derived from forests.
