Research Focus

[photo:] Participants in a focus group about fire issues.  We research how people perceive, use, benefit from, and value natural environments across the landscape. We are leaders in working across disciplines to develop comprehensive information to use in addressing complex environmental questions. Our findings help natural resource managers and policymakers make informed decisions in planning, designing, and managing places with people in mind.
