Tackling Strategies - June 10/11 Workshop #6 for FireScape Mendocino

Please join us in Covelo for the sixth in a series of workshops for FireScape Mendocino Wednesday, June 10th and Thursday, June 11th, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily.

FireScape is a voluntary collaborative effort to shape the future of our fire-prone landscape in and near the Mendocino National Forest.

Working together, we will emphasize shared learning, problem solving and action on the ground. Taking the next step in this collaborative effort, our goals will be:

• Hear from each of the subgroups set up at the previous workshop (Landscape-scale vegetation management, Creating fire-ready communities, Air quality issues, Increasing tribal involvement in
FireScape) on their progress and next steps

• Allow time for subgroups to continue their work

• Continue to build shared learning among participants

During this two-day event, participants will work in both small and large groups, indoors and outdoors. Guided by the best practices of the North America Fire Learning Network, our collaboration is designed to enable people with diverse perspectives to find zones of agreement
where we can achieve tangible results in our communities and the surrounding landscape.

We need people...... With local community perspectives... Who enjoy outdoor recreation (camping, hunting, hiking, OHV, etc.) ... With perspectives on living with wildfires... Who manage land - whether it’s a ranch, timberlands or their backyard ... With thoughts about community and landscape planning ... With enthusiasm and an interest in the future of our local landscapes

Some other examples from around the country can be found at

Lunch will be provided both days. There will be a field trip on Wednesday, lasting much of the day and participants should be prepared for changing weather conditions in the
field. The trip will be accessible, not leaving roads or trails.
