Nov. 19: FireScape Mendocino Hosts Fires and Fuels Management Workshop

FireScape Mendocino is inviting the public to a workshop on Fires and Fuels Management to be held at the Granzella’s Inn Conference Room in Williams, CA on Tuesday, November 19, 2019 from 9 am to 4 pm.

FireScape is a voluntary, inclusive and collaborative effort to shape the future of our fire-prone landscape in and near the Mendocino National Forest. Working together, we emphasize shared learning, problem solving and action on the ground. Taking the next steps in this effort:

  • Hear and provide input to FireScape Core Team updates on goals and actions focused on grants, adaptation to a changed fire regime and climate; and recreation. Learn about $5-million in new grants to the Forest Service for restoration work.
  • We will learn about the current status and goals of the Ranch Fire Recovery and the North Shore Recovery Project with general discussion and input.
  • Discuss regional collaborative fire and fuels management with a special presentation on Prescribed Fire on Private Land: How does it work and how do we collaborate to make this happen here.
  • Where is FireScape Mendocino going? What do you want in future workshops topics?  What are next steps in project development and collaboration?  Are there new grant opportunities?  Bring your ideas and thoughts.  Help us do the job.
  • Feedback is important. Please fill out the survey.

Participants will engage with a variety of collaborators. Guided by the best practices of the North America Fire Learning Network, FireScape Mendocino is designed to enable people with diverse perspectives to find zones of agreement where we can achieve tangible results in our communities and the surrounding landscapes.   For more information, check out our blog at mendocinofirescape.blogspot.com.
