Forest Health at FRC

Feather River College is working hard to complete forest restoration and fuels reduction projects on our campus. Thinning and burning these fires-adapted forest ecosystems is a unique opportunity for hands-on learning for students in our Environmental Studies program and will make our campus forests more resilient. 

Current Campus Projects

These projects are supported by a grant from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy and have been made possible by our many community partners. FRC is proud to have built regional partnerships with federal, state, and local agencies, as well as businesses and non-profits to provide cutting-edge training to students and community members in the space of applied fire and ecosystem management.

We have received preliminary approval from the Community College Chancellor's Office to move forward with devleoping this degree, pending agreemens with the Calfornia State Univeristy system. Graduates from this proposed program would be trained to respond to, and help prevent, catastrophic wildfires that have damaged much of the region. The new degree would equip students with the education and skills necessary to meet critical regional workforce needs related to healthy forest management, prescribed fire, and other techniques to promote healthy forest ecology, as well as restoration of burned forest and riparian ecosystems.
