Ag + Open Space awarded $90,000 grant from NASA

We are pleased to announce that Ag + Open Space has been awarded a $90,000 grant from NASA as part of the Rapid Response and Novel Research in Earth Science Program. This grant will provide funding to capture aerial imagery of the burned areas in Sonoma County and to study post-fire conditions, including changes to land cover, vegetation recovery over time, and carbon loss. The data and research findings funded by this grant will inform our own conservation actions, as well as support long-term recovery and resiliency planning by the County and other local and state agencies.
