Wildland fire prevention, preparation and response are part of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District's ongoing land stewardship. We reduce wildland fire severity and risk in our region by managing vegetation in the preserves with a focus on ecological health and wildland fire resilience, in alignment with our mission and board-approved wildland fire management policy and strategic objective.
