Yolo County Resource Conservation District (RCD) is announcing the Yolo Prescribed Burn Association (PBA). Thanks to funding through CAL FIRE’s California Climate Investments Fire Prevention Program Grant, Yolo County RCD received funding to launch, develop, and coordinate the Yolo PBA.
Prescribed Burn Associations, or PBAs, are community-driven networks of landowners and residents with the common goal of putting “good fire” back on the land.
Prescribed burning is a cost-effective management tool that can reduce hazardous fuels, mitigate extreme wildfire behavior, maintain and generate desired vegetation, and promote healthy ecosystems.
Unlike high-intensity wildfires, prescribed burning is the controlled application of fire under pre-planned management objectives and precise environmental conditions.
Yolo County RCD is excited to announce the Yolo PBA Kickoff Meeting on Thursday, Feb. 23 from 3–6 p.m. at a private ranch in Yolo County. Open to people of all professional backgrounds and/or fire practitioner skill levels, the Yolo PBA Kickoff Meeting will be a chance for potential members and interested residents to learn more about prescribed burning as a land management tool and the benefits of joining the Yolo PBA.
