Prescribed burn project announcement from NRS

The UC Natural Reserve System announces a new project – “Building Foothill Community Resilience to Wildfire with Prescribed Burns” – which will contribute information to the state to help anticipate and prepare for potentially catastrophic wildfires, and improve people’s awareness, acceptance, and confidence in using prescribed burning as a tool in wildfire management to protect wildlife and human populations. RHESSys-Fire will be used in the project to project catastrophic fire risk under possible future climates.
