Protecting your home from wildfire and fire safe home workshops provide homeowners in the wildland-urban interface information about fuels treatments, landscaping, and structure protection from wildfire.


2015 Shasta Forestry Institute for Teachers

Forestry Institute for Teachers brings K-12 teachers from throughout California to Shasta County for a week-long crash course in forest ecology and management. The teachers develop curriculum for their students in other communities far removed from- but heavily dependent upon- water, air, and products derived from forests.
