Prescribed herbivory for fuels reduction: grazing planning and permitting in the State of California – Webinar

May 19, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

As the State of California has ramped up investments to increase fuel treatments to manage high fuel loads and reduce wildfire risk, the use of livestock to treat fuels has received increased attention. A variety of funding sources are available to support wildfire prevention projects and activities in and near fire threatened communities that focus on increasing the protection of people, structures, and communities. In this workshop, representatives from CALFIRE (Department of Forestry & Fire Protection), CalTrans (Department of Transportation), the CDFW (California Department of Fish & Wildlife), and CP SLO’s (California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo) Range Program will discuss the steps involved in the development of grazing agreements (‘licenses’) on State lands and beyond. Topics will include requirements for contracting on State lands, CalTrans encroachment permits, CDFW grazing agreements, CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) processes and requirements, and general guidelines for developing applications for fuel reduction projects utilizing grazing.

These presentations will be made available due to a partnership between the California Board of Forestry and Fire Protection’s Range Management Advisory Committee and Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.
