While many projects are underway at all times in the watershed, since 2018 partners in the SOFAR collaborative have been working together to coordinate efforts in three focus areas to advance the cohesive strategy. Land owners / managers, such as Sierra Pacific Industries, El Dorado Irrigation District, and the Eldorado National Forest have joined with the Resource Conservation District, Fire Safe Councils, the county, and other nonprofit organizations to couple projects when possible to increase the benefit to local communities and ecosystems. SOFAR plans to develop additional focus areas this fall.
