Increasing Watershed Resilience to Promote Fire Adapted Communities

"The connection between watershed protection and forest resilience is becoming increasingly clear, as drought and population pressures stress already limited water supplies, and increasing fuels and a changing climate leave forests ripe for severe fire. Every year, municipal watersheds face threats from severe wildfire, including increased sedimentation rates, decreased water quality and storage, and other impacts from landslides and flooding."

The Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network is at it again....click here to find all four Quick Guides about increasing watershed resilience to promote fire adapted communities.  

With many relevant examples the Guides present a step by step account of key components to consider when seeking solutions to community and watershed issues impacted by wildfire.  

My favorite quote from the first Guide..."be prepared for catastrophic success!"  Check it out.
