State Lands

Approximately one-third of the three million acres of state-owned land are at high risk from uncontrolled wildfire. A comprehensive strategy is being applied to expand forest management and improve the health and resilience of forested state lands in order to protect some of our most valuable natural areas such as State Parks, demonstration forests and CDFW-managed wildlife areas. The State Lands Work Group is leading this effort and organizes and prioritizes wildfire resilience projects on state-owned and managed lands.
