What is an understory? The understory is the part of the forest that grows under the tree canopy. It's a shady area made up of a mixture of plants which usually need more light to leaf out and grow.
And that's what our project is about. Shining a light on how a diverse group of rural residents in the forested Sierra foothills of California are creating new paths toward community revitalization.
This blog is about community, collaboration, and change. It's a space to bring together a network of people who are interested in the community renewal efforts of the Blue Mountain towns of West Point, Wilseyville, Glencoe, and Railroad Flat in
A group of Blue Mountain area youth are using cameras and computers to share their perspectives and showcase local change efforts. We invite you to view their work, give feedback, and share your own stories of community change.
