Innovative conservation research empowers
our community to make a difference
Pepperwood is home to a vast array of research projects that support our Sentinel Site monitoring work. Our projects require many hours of meticulous setup, implementation, and data management. Pepperwood's prolific research productivity would simply not be possible without the help of our citizen scientists, including Pepperwood Stewards and California Naturalists. But not only is citizen science important for data collection, it is also an incredibly valuable experience for volunteers who are able to deepen their relationship to the natural world and play an active role in protecting our local ecosystems.
