Leok Po: Beneficial Fire Awareness Workshop Series
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Cache Creek Conservancy is proposing to conduct a series of annual two-day workshops at the Cache Creek Nature Preserve property. The workshops will provide training to state, regional, local, and tribal firefighting professionals with the skills and opportunity to practice traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) as it relates to cultural burns. Following the workshops, designated areas owned by the County along Lower Cache Creek will be burned using TEK practices. The benefits of these burns include restoration of oak woodlands, native grasslands, and riparian areas. The burns also promote carbon storage on the landscape and reduces accumulated fuel storage. Additionally, the burns promote native plant and wildlife species habitat, improve habitat resiliency, and reduce wildfire risk to local resources and to nearby residents.
