Roots Partnerships & Community Engagement

Examples of community engagement on Roots projects include projects implemented with farmers, ranchers; projects implemented with K-12 students, teachers, and community college students through Point Blue’s STRAW program; projects engaging with the Center for Land Based Learning Student Landowner Education & Watershed Stewardship (SLEWS) program, and projects engaging with other local communities and volunteer organizations.

Point Blue and Roots Program applicants are also partnering with many organizations to implement projects. Partner organizations include: the California Association of Resource Conservation Districts (CARCD), local resource conservation districts (RCD), the California Conservation Corps (CCC), the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and others. Roots projects are also being implemented in collaboration and partnership with Indigenous Tribes.
