Business-Environment Breakfast: Preparing for Wildfire in California

The ‘new normal’ of increasing wildfire risk in California’s warming climate and ailing forests calls for ‘new solutions’! A panel of experts will provide a better understanding of how fire ecologists and other wildfire professionals, at both statewide and Marin County levels, are coming to grips with balancing the beneficial and destructive forces of wildfire and strategizing to protect humans living in our WUIs* from catastrophic risk while fostering biodiversity in our ecosystems.
