Wildland Fire Resiliency - October Updates

New fuel break along the Mora Trail on the northern boundary of Rancho San Antonio Preserve, September 2021.

In September, Midpen staff completed ecologically sensitive fuels reduction along the Mora Trail at the northern edge of Rancho San Antonio Preserve. Throughout the month of October, staff are building on previous work with additional fuels reduction along the eastern boundary of Pulgas Ridge Preserve.  Both projects are using a remote-control powered mower that can more easily access steep slopes.
 

Proactively Reducing Risk

We work year-round to reduce wildland fire severity and risk in our region by managing vegetation in the public open space preserves we care for with a focus on ecological health and wildland fire resilience.

In addition to ongoing annual activities, our Wildland Fire Resiliency Program, finalized in 2021, is proactively expanding our environmentally sensitive vegetation management by approximately 600% over 10 years to promote healthy, resilient, fire-adapted ecosystems to reduce wildland fire risk and facilitate the response of fire agencies.
