Title: Fact Sheet: Southwestern Ecological Restoration Institutes (SWERI)
Author: * Egan, D.
Abstract: The U.S. Forest Service estimates that 132 million acres of forested public and private land are at risk from unnatural fire. This situation poses a serious threat to the social and economic vitality of forested communities. Moreover, these lands fall short in their ability to provide wildlife habitat, a full complement of watershed values, and other ecosystem service benefits. The goal of the Southwest Forest Restoration Institutes (SWERI) is to help convert this potential liability into an asset.
