Wildfires have long been a natural part of the California landscape, but “fire season” (a phrase that only recently entered the general lexicon of most Californians) continues to expand, beginning earlier and ending later with each passing year. As of late August, a total of 6,714 fires had been recorded in 2021 alone, burning nearly 1.65 million acres and damaging or destroying more than 2,000 structures. What will it take to restrain this relentless assault on our state’s land and air? Join us for a conversation with the California Natural Resources Agency’s Deputy Secretary for Forest Resources Management to hear about the state’s plans for addressing this intractable challenge and the difficult choices that California will have to make in the future.
