Please join us for our March meeting on Thursday March 12 at 7 pm. The meeting will feature a presentation by Byron Bonny about wildfires.
Byron Bonny – was with the Forest Service from 1969 to 2001. Currently, he is a Community Forester with the Bitterroot RC&D. Besides his current role as a Wildland Fire consultant in the Northern Rockies, he works with private landowners in Ravalli, Missoula, and Mineral Counties dealing with hazardous fuels treatments.
The Fire Environment has changed over the past several decades because our climate is warmer and dryer.
Extensive research has confirmed that the best thing you can do to protect your home from wildfires is reduce fuels within 100 feet of your residence.
Byron will give a presentation about how best to protect your home from wildfire.
