San Diego Management & Monitoring Program

Stakeholder Meeting - Connecting Wildlands and Communities

January 30, 2019 10:00am to January 30, 2019 12:00pm

Location: Vista Civic Center ( Google Maps)

Kicking off the first phase of the Connecting Wildlands and Communities project, funded by the Strategic Growth Council through the California Climate Investments Initiative. The goal of this project is to create climate-ready landscapes in southern California by bringing together land use and conservation planning to reduce fire risk, promote water sustainability, and preserve biodiversity through integrated planning. This project is led by San Diego State University’s Institute for Ecological Monitoring and Management (IEMM) in partnership with the Climate Science Alliance, the San Diego Association of Governments, the Southern California Association of Governments, among others.

This will be a stakeholder-driven effort, and as such, they would like to invite you to join their first partner meeting on January 30, 2019 10 AM - 12 PM at the Vista Civic Center in Vista OR February 21, 2019 2:30 - 4:30 PM (tentative) at the Southern California Association of Governments office in Los Angeles. The workshop and discussion will focus on the project vision and core focal areas including climate resilient ecosystems and community planning and implementation, with a specific emphasis on connected landscapes, wildfire, water sustainability, and land conservation.

Please RSVP here to let them know which of the meetings you plan to attend or if you’re unavailable for these meetings, but would like to receive updates on this project and be notified of future meetings. You can also learn more about the project at
