The health of an ecosystem is the measure of its biodiversity. The more diverse the life in an ecosystem, the more life it can support and the more stress it can weather. This is particularly important when warming temperatures are heating our atmosphere beyond any previous records, resulting in a dryer climate. In Napa County our conifer forests, oak woodlands and the living soils that support them are critically important to the health of our watersheds and the maintenance of our water supplies. Our watersheds are important in creating a “preserving harmony” between agriculture and the natural world.
