This project seeks to complete a 5-year strategic plan for advancing the use of prescribed fire in CA with proposed funding to support critical tasks including legal review and revisions, overall content editing, integration of state and federal land, air and fire management agency priorities, and final layout and formatting for publication. This plan will become the guiding framework for policy and cooperative investments on behalf of the CA state agencies (CAL FIRE, CA Air Resources Board, etc.), the federal land management agencies (US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service) and their partners in the conservation sector, tribes and other allies over the years to come, providing a shared platform to align energy and resources towards more good fire in CA.
