We are supporting and participating in educational outreach and action throughout rural communities in the North Coast to assess community-identified needs for fire resiliency and inform residents of actions they can personally take to reduce their risks from wildfires. Each community needs comprehensive tools for understanding defensible space measures, fire hardening techniques, benefits of fire-safe landscaping, developing a fire action plan including a family evacuation plan, and available resources to assist in community-wide planning.

Areas burned by wildfires are priority locations for us to implement habitat plantings and stabilization activities, particularly in riparian and oak woodland settings.
