Charles Selberg was a great teacher, mentor, artist, fencing master, and environmentalist. His later years were spent in the Colestin Valley, where he fell in love with Northern California and Southern Oregon. The Institute honors his legacy.
The mission of the Selberg Institute is to help conserve the unique ecosystems of the greater Cascade-Siskiyou landscape through scientific research, education, and land stewardship.
This organization is helmed by committed, brilliant, and kind people. It is our honor to work with them, and we give special thanks to the Executive Director, Maia Black, who carefully deliberated over every aspect of this website — the photos, color scheme, and messaging. Also gratitude to Christopher Cochran, the gifted programmer who helped bring this custom WordPress theme to life.
