Central Coast Fire Learning Network

Description

In 2008, wild fires consumed thousands of acres and affected many, many lives.  While responses to the fires were largely positive and productive, there are many lessons to be learned and much information to share to improve our responses in the future.  And so, conservation groups are joining with fire safety organizations through the Central Coast Fire Learning Network in order to improve fire safety while conserving biological diversity.  The Elkhorn Slough Coastal Training Program and the University of California at Santa Cruz’ Arboretum are partnering in this endeavor to organize and facilitate this group.  For information and to sign up for news about the group, please email Brett Hall at the Arboretum:  brett’at’ucsc.edu
