Deep Dive: Shifts in Land Management

How should we manage public land in California? Join us for one or both parts of this two-semester event series that seeks to explore the many facets of this question. In this first hour, we will use Yosemite and the Fairfield Osborn Preserve as case studies to outline major themes in the history of California land management, the philosophy of why that management was chosen, and its effects on California’s land.
