Join prescribed fire practitioners Brian Peterson and Jacob McDaniel for the Friends of Sausal Creek’s May Community Talk on Thursday, May 20, at 7:00 p.m. Our speakers will discuss how working with fire can benefit the Bay Area’s communities and ecosystems and answer commonly asked questions about prescribed burning. With the approach of fire season, this timely talk is relevant for all California residents, whether urban, rural, or in-between.
