Conservation Talk: Fire Ecology

June 24, 2017

AUDUBON CANYON RANCH Martin Griffin Preserve Fire plays an integral, yet complicated role in our California landscapes. ACR, through its new Fire Ecology Program, is taking a leadership role in the North Bay working with various agencies and land managers to address hazardous fuel loads and declining ecosystem health through the coordination of cooperative, ecologically planned, scientifically monitored, and safely implemented controlled burns. In this presentation, we’ll discuss the role of fire in the landscape, how California’s ecosystems coevolved with fire, and how fire suppression has changed our landscapes. We’ll discuss the differences between wildfire and prescribed fire, learn about intricacies of fire behavior, and how prescribed fires are manipulated, controlled, and monitored. Finally, we’ll present the program’s specific short- and long-term plans, objectives and rationale, and how these will be achieved.
