This 1-hour workshop will provide updates on two grants related to fire:
• UCCE San Benito County has been conducting research on how much forage/fuels
livestock consume in counties across California, and how grazing influences fire safety in
the State. We will share results from the study. This research is supported by a grant from
the California Cattle Council.
• UCCE San Benito County and the RCD of Monterey County (RCDMC) were recently
awarded a CAL FIRE grant to develop a Prescribed Burn Association (PBA). We will
discuss next steps to develop a PBA in San Benito, Monterey, and Santa Cruz counties;
new collaborative burning and potential research opportunities with CAL FIRE; and
working with a burn boss to lead your prescribed burn on private or public land.
Speakers will include Devii Rao (UCCE), Jamie Tuitele-Lewis (RCDMC), Jonathan Pangburn
(CAL FIRE), Phil Dye (Prometheus Fire Consulting), and Felix Ratcliff (LD Ford, Consultants
in Rangeland Conservation Science).
