NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Sierra Nevada Conservancy will provide grant funding to Chico State Enterprises to develop educational curriculum. Shasta Community College, Feather River Community College, Chico State Enterprises Geographical Information Center (GIC), and Chico State Enterprises Ecological Reserves will work collaboratively and in consultation with the Maidu Summit Consortium to develop curriculum modules that can be used in existing forestry and environmental studies courses to build local capacity for planning fire resiliency projects. First, a gap assessment will be completed in partnership with industry sector leaders and community college faculty to identify educational curriculum and vocational training gaps within areas of planning in the forestry and fuels management sector. Once gaps in training and education are identified, modules will be developed to prepare students to implement planning steps for fire resiliency projects that provide for public safety while enhancing environmental quality. Indigenous perspectives and Traditional Ecological Knowledge will be incorporated into curriculum modules, and module pilot implementation will be prioritized on Maidu Summit Consortium tribal land as aligned with the Consortium’s land stewardship objectives and future project implementation goals.
