“Fighting Climate Change & Wildfire
Risks with a Resilient Urban Forest”
Thursday, Nov. 21– 5:30-6:30 p.m. Del Mar Civic Center Town Hall.
Local residents are invited to attend a presentation on the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s Forest Health and Preservation and Fire Preparedness Initiative. Reservations are not required for the event, which is sponsored by Del Mar’s Sustainability Advisory Board.
California has endured epic wildfires over the last several years, due primarily to the more extreme weather patterns brought on by global warming. The Rancho Santa Fe Association (RSFA) recently commissioned a forest health study to learn how to maintain their community’s extensive tree canopy while reducing its wildfire risk. Participants in the study and fire and forestry consultants will discuss the role trees play in combating climate change, and cooling our homes and streets, and what Del Mar and other communities can do to prevent wildfires and preserve their urban forests.
