The University of California Cooperative Extension is giving more knowledge and connections to landowners after recent fires in the Valley
Due to the recent fires in Mariposa, Madera, and Fresno counties, the University of California Cooperative Extension invites owners of forest and oak woodland in those areas to enroll in their Post-Fire Forest Resilience Workshop.
The workshop will be taking place February 1, 2023, through March 17, 2023. Zoom meetings will be held with all participants and presenters will take place once a week on Wednesdays from 6-7:30 PM starting February 1st.
There will also be field trips on March 16th and 17th, which will take participants to the footprints of the Creek and Oak Fires to observe fire impacts and the effects of post-fire management activities.
The goal of the workshop is to connect landowners to information, resources, and professionals to help them manage their own land post-wildfire! The workshop will address:
the increasing disturbances in Sierra Nevada Forests and the associated ecological and management implications
post-fire issues including hazard trees, erosion, and fuels
dead tree and biomass removal
control of competing vegetation and invasive plants
and landowner assistance programs specific to the fires of focus and geographical region
Participants will also be using online resources on their own time to complete learning modules.
The cost for this 7 week workshop will be $25. Registration information can be found at http://ucanr.edu/post-fireworkshops. For more information or questions, contact Daylin Wade at firstname.lastname@example.org .
