I have worked with CSERC from several different viewpoints. I have been the chair of the local chapter of the California Native Plant Society for 9 years and conservation chair for 10, and I feel they are the best source of information and resources in the region( central sierra) They constantly provide leadership for other local environmental organzations, as well as ours, in identifying and meeting the challenges we face. Good examples are the Forest Plan ( USFS Stanislaus) , the Clavey River protection, and the Stanislaus NF off-road vehicle battle. Since 2005, I have served as a commissioner on the Tuolumne County Planning Commission. CSERC always provides an important viewpoint on important issues, is consulted by the board often and is an important provider of reliable verifiable important facts that no one else has presented, including county staff. Perhaps most importantly, CSERC often manages to help bodies find workable compromise and solutions to land use problems. The combination of reliable scientific information and leadership ,provided by CSERC, has made our central Sierra a better place to live
