Tree Rings- Call for Contributions

A call to nature writers, artists, scientists, and poets.

The Yuba Watershed Institute (YWI) is currently accepting submissions for our annual journal, Tree Rings. The theme of the upcoming edition is "Healthy Forests." Submissions are due October 31, 2014.

What does a healthy Sierra Nevada forest look like and how can we manage for this now and into the future?

We welcome well-researched perspectives and personal narratives on hot topics related to forest health and management such as fire in the Sierra Nevada, salvage logging, climate change, managing for wildlife, restoration, invasive species, and more. We also welcome stories  of the ‘Inimim, as well as art and poetry reflecting your visions and contemplations of healthy forests.

We are requesting art, letters, poems, articles, and notes related to this topic.

Articles and letters should be limited to 1,000 words or less.
This edition will be edited by Daniel Nicholson and Corinne Munger.
