On a positive note, Chris Brinegar, Professor and Director of the Biotechnology Education, and Research Institute at San Jose State University, has completed a six month personal project to map all of the timber harvest plans approved in the Santa Cruz Mountains during the 1990s.
In reviewing the maps one of the more interesting things I noticed was how heavily hit (i.e. how heavily logged) the Corralitos area has been.Chris
recent sabbatical in the Felton CDF office (yes, you read that correctly!) gathering data which he
then entered into digital format on USGS maps.He
is making this available to CRFM
to post on our website.Chris' personal interest is in the genetics of coastal Redwoods, but he
is also interested in redwood preservation.He
is graciously making his
research results available for use by others.To learn his
guidelines and to contact him directly: email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 408-924-4839.
That's it for now.
