Flying over an ocean of sand in the Mojave Desert of California, a postage stamp size parcel appears on the horizon. Its borders are square, signifying a man-made perimeter, and there are patches of green with a few buildings scattered on the 34,000 acres.

Our EcoFlight tour highlighted the "good" and the "bad" of forest management on both public and private Sierra Nevada forest lands. The route went over the footprint of the 2014 King Fire, then over a patchwork private forest lands actively managed by Sierra Pacific Industries, then southward over the Caples Recommended Wilderness Area, where the state is funding a forward-thinking prescribed burn project with the support of the local water agency.
