Document Description
The proposed project consists of expanding a series of shaded fuel breaks in Tuolumne County on federal lands (U.S. Department of Interior Bureau of Land Management [BLM]- and U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service [USFS]-administered land), private lands, and lands controlled by State and local agencies. The project is a collaborative effort under the oversight of the State of California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) and Sierra Nevada Conservancy (SNC). The USFS Stanislaus National Forest (STF) would be implementing the fuel break activity and California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) staff would be providing support and facilitating STF implementation activities.
