Sierrra Solutions Presentations Online
The presentations for the Sierra Solutions conference are now online on the Sierra Business Council website. They are in PDF format.
The biomass utilization session was titled "Old School Fuels: Linking Forest Health and Regional Prosperity". The three speakers started with the resource base, introduced stewardship contracting as a tool, moved on to an analysis of logical biomass utilization pathways and then focused on the Fuels for Schools program.
