MENDOCINO CO., 9/9/18 — In the wake of the recent fires, many residents and landowners are wondering what they can do to better protect their homes from future fires. Here in Mendocino there are a variety of organizations that help provide information and resources about fire prevention strategies. And the experts at the Mendocino County Resource Conservation District and the Mendocino County Growers Alliance have put together a series of workshops in different communities to share just this kind of advice.
The workshops will be held in Laytonville and Redwood Valley, with discussons on tools and strategies for land management, with a focus on fire preparedness and water security for rural farms, cannabis gardens, and other landscapes. Fire season is still in full force, so while you can’t have a burn pile to clear brush right now, there are different kinds of wildland management practices that can be undertaken all year-round. Staff from the MCRCD and Casey O’Neill from the Mendocino County Grower’s Alliance will give the presentations. Advance registration is requested.
The Laytonville workshop will be held Tuesday, Sept. 18, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Harwood Hall.
The Redwood Valley workshop will be held Saturday, Sept. 22 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Redwood Valley Grange.
