New Collaboration for Monitoring and Restoration

This year, we’ve teamed with the Siskiyou Land Trust and College of the Siskiyous in new efforts to monitor our unique local ecosystems, and restore communities of valuable native plants and animals.

We are now pleased to announce completion of first year data collection at Sisson Meadow, a sensitive wet meadow ecosystem in the heart of the City of Mount Shasta.

MSBEC Senior Program Director and COS Adjunct Faculty member Arielle Halpern began by developing protocols and metrics to monitor land use effects and climate change indicators there. Under her guidance, COS student Jane Dyer compiled and composed our initial report documenting the current status of these indicators in the meadow. You can read this report below:

We look forward to many more years of keeping watch over the state of our valuable and sensitive meadow ecosystems!
