Pile burning workshop and workparty
June 13, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
Date: June 13
Time: 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
CCPBA will be hosting a late season Pile Burn Workshop/ work party near La Selva Beach, Santa Cruz County. It will cover the basics of safely burning and the permit process. Post workshop, we will put the new found skills to use by burning numerous vegetation piles for wildfire safety. This will be a free workshop and lunch will be provided by the landowner. Sign up here if you would like to join.
Also relevant to the pile burning subject, is that the CCPBA is considering the creation of a “Wildfire Preparation Brigade” for both the Santa Cruz Mountains and the Northern Santa Lucia Mountains. The brigade would be a network of volunteers willing to help people who live in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) perform pile burning safely, create defensible space and make home hardening recommendations. Tools and gear would be provided by the CCPBA. This network would be low commitment and be based on availability/ interest. If this sounds interesting and that you might want to be involved in the forming of these brigades, email Jared Childress at email@example.com
