CalVTP Field Training: Sierra Foothills, Vista Del Rio Project

November 1, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This is an opportunity to learn about a fuel reduction project at Vista Del Rio in Oakhurst, California. Participants will increase their understanding of how CALFIRE used the CalVTP at Vista Del Rio (Oakhurst) to facilitate vegetation management and fuels reduction.

Participants will complete a field treatment tour of the project area, learning about the different treatment methods used and why they were chosen. Sebastien Cordier, Madera-Mariposa-Merced Unit Environmental Scientist at CAL FIRE, and Brian Mattos, Madera-Mariposa-Merced Unit Forester at CAL FIRE, will discuss the need for this project, how the treatment zones were selected, and the successes as well as the shortcomings that happened while implementing this project.

There are limited spots available in this workshop and we anticipate an overwhelming response. To assure your spot at the workshop, register as early as possible. Note: Please limit registration only for yourself; we will not accept multiple registrations from one person. 

Because space is extremely limited, once registration is full, there will be a waiting list to pull from as people cancel. Therefore, please let us know if you find out you cannot attend, even at the last minute. Failure to notify of cancellation may affect priority registration at future events.

If you have questions about this field workshop or form, please contact Education and Events Assistant Olivia Shaw at orshaw@calpoly.edu.
