Earlier this month, the Napa Resource Conservation District, USDA-National Resources Conservation Service, and UC Cooperative Extension offered an education opportunity for land managers interested in learning about grazing as a fire hazard management tool.
This in-person workshop was held in Calistoga and consisted of presentations in the classroom in the morning, followed by an afternoon field visit to a local property that is grazing livestock. The workshop focused on:
- The basics of prescribed grazing and incorporating livestock in the forest and on rangeland
- How prescribed grazing can be used as a management tool to reduce wildfire fuel load
- Options for how to incorporate livestock for fuel reduction on your property
