The Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District it offering three Keeping Your Home and Property Safe from Wildfire Workshops this spring. Each workshop will be offered in a different part of the District with the goal of making this valuable information available to as many people as possible.
Reports of destructive and life-threatening wildfires that have occurred in western states in the past few years may make owners of forested land nervous about the upcoming dry weather of summer. Be proactive and educate yourself on the steps you can take to make your home and property more fire resistant!
Upcoming Wildfire Workshops will offer these topics:
- Creating defensible space around your home and outbuildings
- Reducing the fuel that makes fires more destructive and difficult to fight
- Making a plan for your family to escape in the case of wildfire
- Connecting with technical and limited financial assistance
All workshops are from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and are free to attend. Space is limited, however, so registration is required.
Choose from these three dates and locations:
- February 28: Estacada Community Center 200 SW Clubhouse Dr., Estacada
- March 12: Molalla Grange Hall 127 Grange Ave., Molalla
- April 4: Hoodland Fire Station 69634 E. Hwy 26, Welches
