Equity and Inclusion Resources

The SRF website has many resources for salmonid restoration professionals from Beavers to Wildfires Effects on River Ecosystems. One page that SRF is proud of is the Equity and Inclusion Resources for Scientists and Organizations page that was added in 2020 when SRF hosted the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Panel. The newest resource is the Mycelium Map, created by the California Landscape Stewardship Network’s JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) Roundtable. The Mycelium Map uses the ecological metaphor of the fungal structure to show a pathway to explore, consider/reconsider, and to act.
