This webinar is an opportunity for participants to increase their understanding of how to plan, fund, and implement fuels reduction programs and projects through a successful case study. We will highlight a partnership between a California Utility and a Federally Recognized Tribe to both increase wildfire resiliency and develop capacity with a focus on Collaboration, Connection, and Commitment.

The Pala Band of Mission Indians and San Diego Gas & Electric embarked on a multiyear wildfire mitigation project which focused on reducing hazardous fuels surrounding select utility poles on tribal land while maintaining ecologically important native habitat. Natural Resource Director, Jeremy Zagarella, and Fuels Management Project Manager, Ryan White, will be discussing the background, preparation, and implementation of a successful collaborative project. This project was specifically structured to ensure that flame length and height, radiant heat, and particulate carbon were reduced while also maintaining some percentage of the ecological services provided by adjacent habitat. They will explain how this relationship was established. Collaboration, Connection, and Commitment are the key components that lead to a successful project with the hopes that others can do similar projects.
