On October 15, 2008 in Visalia, CA, Headwaters Economics conducted a public workshop titled “Know your Social and Economic Situation” for the Sequoia National Forest and members of the public.

The goals of the workshop were to jointly identify socioeconomic trends affecting the area, the role of forest resources in the regional economy, and how these trends and assets can be integrated into forest management plans, including the management plan for the Giant Sequoia National Monument.

On October 16, 2008 in Porterville, CA, Headwaters Economics held a training for Forest Service Region 5 staff titled “Working with Socioeconomic Information and Tools.”

The goals of the training were to help Forest Service personnel to locate and interpret existing socioeconomic data relevant to regional forests, and to become competent in the use of software developed by Headwaters Economics for the Forest Service.
