Navigating the Proposal Process for Wildfire Fuels Treatment Using Prescribed Grazing
February 24, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
CAL FIRE and the State of California have continued to ramp up investments in resources for increasing fuel treatments to manage high fuel loads and reduce wildfire risk. Using livestock to treat fuels has significant potential for managing combustible vegetation. A variety of funding sources are available to support wildfire prevention projects and activities in and near fire-threatened communities that focus on increasing the protection of people, structures, and communities. In this workshop, CALFIRE, UC Extension advisors, and grazing managers will offer general guidelines for developing applications for fuel reduction projects utilizing grazing through Request for Proposal (RFP) processes, and developing successful grazing agreements. Information required for major elements of the funding application process and important considerations that often require funding for wildfire fuel mitigation using prescribing grazing will be discussed.
This workshop will be held in person and virtually during the morning session of the Joint Range Conference “Rangeland and Fire,” a partnership of the Range Management Advisory Committee and the California Rangeland Conservation Coalition. For more information about the full-day event, and to see the complete agenda and speakers for both the free morning session and the afternoon program, click here. Doors open at 8 am: Stockton Agricultural Center, 2101 East Earhart Avenue, Stockton. Ample, free parking is available on-site.
These presentations will be made available due to a partnership between the California Board of Forestry and Fire Protection’s Range Management Advisory Committee and Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.
