Dr. Chelsea Carey is the Working Lands Research Director and Principal Soil Ecologist with Point Blue Conservation Science, a California-based non-profit focused on climate-smart conservation. Through this role, Chelsea develops and leads priority research projects and partnerships that will help inform rangeland management across the state. Notably, she works with TomKat Ranch and Point Blue’s Rangeland Monitoring Network to conduct and share science that will support rangeland managers in sustainably promoting desired on-site and public services across the state. Her research focuses on characterizing soil properties that are relevant to soil health and climate mitigation, determining how management influences these properties across space and time, and identifying ways that explicit consideration of the soil can improve success of conservation practices like riparian restoration. Before joining Point Blue, Chelsea received her Ph.D. from UC Merced and spent time as a postdoctoral scholar at UC Riverside. You can find out more about Chelsea’s work here.
