Los Gatos Creek Watershed Collaboration
Forest Health Grant
The Los Gatos Creek Watershed Collaborative Forest Health Project
The First Collaboration grant award is $7.5 million to treat 938 acres, started August 29, 2021 and concludes March 31, 2025.
This collaborative landscape-level effort has identified an interconnectable mosaic pattern of treatment areas that, with ecologically sensitive treatments, intend to:
- Establish healthy, resilient fire-adapted ecosystems to protect and conserve natural resources.
- Protect upper watersheds where important regional water supplies originate.
- Promote the long-term storage of carbon and reduce the severity of catastrophic wildfire
thereby increasing community and forest ecosystem protection.
