The Nevada County Resource Conservation District invites you to learn how to prepare for a controlled, prescribed burn. Good fire is a tool that reduces uncontrolled wildfire hazard, improves defensible space, promotes biodiversity and restores the health of fire adaptive environments. Join us to learn more about the benefits, safety, and careful planning needed for safe, legal and responsible controlled burns. Learn how to: locate & prepare a burn site, build control lines, what tools to use, prepare the site for safe burning, such as selective pruning and ladder fuel removal . CAL FIRE will join us to discuss permitting requirements. These workshops will include 4 hours of hands-on education at an actual prescribed burn site. Sign-ups and details for each of the workshops are included below. Information on what to bring and wear are included on the sign-up page.
November 4th – You Bet Area, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm at the You Bet FireWise Community. Address to be provided to those who sign up.
