CSLN uses quality Science to address social-ecological system problems. Specifically, CSLN engages at the intersection of working lands and conservation to optimize the two and produce equitable outcomes for society and the diverse communities that rely on these natural systems. We believe the quality of our scientific approach is enhanced through a DEI approach. Bringing together people with diverse points of view, talents, and knowledge is imperative to solve the Climate crisis. Balancing economic, social, and environmental concerns to produce sustainable outcomes requires the integration of diverse stakeholders, quality science, and climate-focused solutions.
