The CA LCC, CA Department of Water Resources, and co-sponsors will host a one-day workshop for state and federal agency staff, NGO's, and Tribes with interest in how Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) can help ensure resilient and sustainable landscapes for California in the face of climate change and other ecological stressors. 

Participants will learn from Tribal instructors about what TEK is, how it has been cross-walked with Western science to gain valuable insights about species and ecological cycles, and how to talk with Tribes about TEK. Attendees will come away with an increased understanding of TEK and indigenous peoples of California, and how we can work together in the future.
