Siuslaw Watershed Council to Host Education Event: Coastal Fire History, the 2020 Sweet Creek Fire, and Fire Prevention on May 26th, from 5:30-7:00 PM, Zoom
Coastal Oregon has a long history of wildfires and is at risk for wildfires today, as the 2020 Mapleton and Echo Mountain Complex fires demonstrated. Knowing this history can serve as a reminder of wildfire dangers that coastal residents face, and be a prompt to prepare our communities to prevent or withstand fires.
Aaron Groth will present this talk, which will cover coastal Oregon fire history, recent fires, and steps you can take to protect your community, family, home, and property. Aaron is the Regional Fire Specialist for Coastal Oregon in the Forestry and Natural Resources OSU Extension Fire Program, and we’re thrilled that he is bringing his knowledge and resources to the Siuslaw Watershed Community! Bring your questions—there will be time for Q&A.
The meeting will be hosted via Zoom, and is free to attend.
Registration is required, and is easy to do:
