The state hasn’t learned the lessons related to wildfire. For nearly 15 years the California Chaparral Institute has been advocating for a better outcome than vegetation removal on all our wildlands as the “answer” to stopping wildfire. It doesn’t work–we have dozens of fires to point to as proof.
On Wednesday, December 11th, CalFire will consider approving its Vegetation Treatment Program’s Environmental Impact Report. The plan is to target 20 MILLION acres of native California habitat and destroy it–in the name of fire protection.
The goal is to put enough pressure on Governor Newsom that science will prevail. The Institute has a petition for you to sign. Please do so before Wednesday morning.
