What should you do with your land after a wildfire?

The CNPS Fire Recovery Guide addresses that question in an easy-to-use booklet, created in response to the widespread Wine Country fires. The Guide is a collaborative effort between CNPS, North Bay partner organizations, and some of the best fire experts in the state. Sections include:

  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • Dos and Don’ts
  • Care and Recovery
  • Erosion Control
  • Fire Preparedness
  • Seeding
  • Helpful decision trees, and more

While this Guide is designed to serve landowners in the North Bay, our hope is that others will take this material and expand and adapt it to benefit others in need elsewhere in California, today and tomorrow.

Not only is the Guide meant to provide best-practice instructions and resources, we also hope it will encourage conversations about how we can live with fire in an increasingly fire-prone state, while also ensuring there is a place for the beautiful plants and incredible wildlife that make living in California so special.
