Fire Management Policy

Adopted September 13, 2003

The California Native Plant Society supports fire management policies that protect life and property and conserve native plant species and their habitats. Vegetation management aimed at reducing fire risk must be interdisciplinary, science-based, consistent with State and Federal laws, and must minimize damage to native plant species and their habitats. The California Native Plant Society recommends that agencies and jurisdictions promote and apply research to develop site-specific and effective fire management methods that conserves native plant species and their habitats.
