Webinar: Grazing and Prescribed Burning for Fire Safety

Date: Thursday, July 2, 2020
Time: 9:00 am to 10:00 am
Location: This will be a virtual meeting. You can join by Zoom or by telephone.
Cost: Free, but registration is required.
Register here: http://ucanr.edu/survey/survey.cfm?surveynumber=30242 or contact Devii Rao at drorao@ucanr.edu or 831-205-3125. Once you register, you will receive Zoom/call-in information. Registration deadline is June 26.
This 1-hour workshop will provide updates on two grants related to fire:
• UCCE San Benito County has been conducting research on how much forage/fuels livestock consume in counties across California, and how grazing influences fire safety in the State. We will share results from the study. This research is supported by a grant from the California Cattle Council.
• UCCE San Benito County and the RCD of Monterey County (RCDMC) were recently awarded a CAL FIRE grant to develop a Prescribed Burn Association (PBA). We will discuss next steps to develop a PBA in San Benito, Monterey, and Santa Cruz counties; new collaborative burning and potential research opportunities with CAL FIRE; and working with a burn boss to lead your prescribed burn on private or public land.
Speakers will include Devii Rao (UCCE), Jamie Tuitele-Lewis (RCDMC), Jonathan Pangburn (CAL FIRE), Phil Dye (Prometheus Fire Consulting), and Felix Ratcliff (LD Ford, Consultants in Rangeland Conservation Science).
