A More Resilient Future
For the last 100 years, U.S. fire suppression policies have largely kept fire from playing its natural role, resulting in unnaturally high “fuel” levels in forests throughout the country. The Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network is helping people create a more wildfire-resilient future by connecting the innovative leaders in the field. The Network approached Vermilion to create a robust community website of members working locally and sharing ideas and lessons learned nationally. The site includes focus areas, a blog, and an extensive listing of pertinent resources.
