The systematic reduction of hazardous vegetation to directly reduce wildfire risks, protect watersheds, and promote watershed health.
Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority
The Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority (“MRCA”) operates and manages dozens of park sites, hundreds of individual APN locations, and thousands of acres of open space located throughout Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. The systematic reduction of hazardous vegetation at these sites directly reduces wildfire risks, protects watersheds, and promotes watershed health. The reduction of wildfire risk benefits the entire Los Angeles metro area, including disadvantaged communities. The lands subject to vegetation management are mostly located in undeveloped mountain areas and are not in or adjacent to a disadvantaged community.
