Project: Fuel Hazard Reduction

Description: The Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority 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 protection and restoration of both natural and developed resources found on these lands can be facilitated by the systematic removal of invasive plants and restoration of native plant communities in their place. The removal of hazardous fuel-loads directly protects structures and other park features. Moreover, such wildfire prevention efforts help to protect wildlife and plant communities found in fragmented urban interface and open space areas. Erosion and watershed protection is also accomplished by restoration of native plant communities and the prevention of wildfires through the reduction of fuel loads. These actions also reduce sediment, ash, and organic matter loading of streams draining these watersheds.
