Many have asked to see a copy of the slideshow presented by Sonoma Ecology Center staff during our “Healing with the Land” community forum held last Monday, Nov. 27 at Burlingame Hall. HERE IT IS, in pdf format.
The forum was a great success, with several dozen concerned Sonoma Valley residents in attendance and asking informed questions. Topics covered included California’s fire ecology and wildfire history, how the October fires started and spread, watershed protection, the use of data and maps to guide our fire response, best practices on reseeding burned landscapes, how Sustainable Sonoma can help the Valley recover, how our NeWTs program also can help in the recovery process, how to get involved, and much more.
Thank you to all who attended, and a special thank you to First Congregational Church of Sonoma for generously lending us the use of Burlingame Hall.
