Join the Southern Sierra Prescribed Fire Council for their annual meeting in Porterville, CA. Attendance is free but please fill out the RSVP by Oct 19th on this page to help us plan.
Sierran forests are facing catastrophic wildfires, vast overstory mortality, extreme understory fuel loading, high vegetative density, and limited regional market options. The incorporation of fire use with fuel and density management treatments is becoming of increasing interest as a tool in the effort to restore Central Sierra forestlands. Can we use fire in a way that sustains timber objectives? Come join us for presentations, a field tour, and thoughtful discussions.
UC Hopland Research and Extension Center invites scientists to learn more about research opportunities this fall, during a webinar on September 7 and/or site tour on October 19. Click here to register
