Current Projects

Worker clearing fallen timber

Here are just a few examples of the projects we currently have underway:

  • Identifying ways that small forest and range land owners can access payments for ecosystem services
  • Calculating the economic impacts for forest and watershed restoration
  • Examining how oak savanna restoration can protect communities from wildfire
  • Understanding the economic impacts of large wild-land fires in rural communities.
  • Conducting studies to inform people and decision makers in Oregon’s Willamette Valley in dealing with rapid population growth while sustaining wildlife habitat, water quality, agriculture, and economic development
  • Understanding how community based organizations build networks and foster natural resource-based economic development in rural communities
  • Measuring the importance of cold-water habitats as stepping stones for salmon, linking the habitats to dynamic river processes, and identifying land owner benefits and concerns to design on-going conservation and restoration efforts in the Willamette River floodplain.
