*8 Community Forestry Day
- Fire Wise and Fire Safe
Living on the edge of the forest, in homes nestled amongst the trees can be inviting or frightening, depending on how defensible is your space. This Community Forestry Day is half workshop about "how-to" assess and reduce fire risks at your own home, and half volunteer day. Help protect the valuable forest and facilities at Hopkins by volunteering to reduce and remove fire hazards in our Fire-Safe Demonstration Project.
If you would enjoy cooking lunch for our volunteers, please join our community in the forest. Call well ahead to arrange: we buy the food if you do the rest.
