Cultivating Place: The Klamath Mountains, A Natural History, Michael Kauffman & Justin Garwood
This week we complete our 4-part conservation series kicking off 2023 by taking a broader look at the Klamath River’s namesake region and the importance of knowing any place better from multiple perspectives for the most effective and durable conservation to be truly possible.
We’re in conversation with Michael Kauffman, research plant ecologist, educator, and founder with his botanist wife Allison of the ecologically focused Backcountry Press, and Justin Garwood, Environmental Scientist for the California Dept. of Fish and wildlife with a focus on fisheries.
Michael and Justin have spent the better part of the last decade curating and editing a cohort of 34 expert contributors to a new and really the first comprehensive Natural History of the Klamath Mountains, one of the most biodiverse temperate mountain ranges on earth. Listen in!
