Pepperwood in collaboration with the Good Fire Alliance and the Sonoma County Forest Working Group are excited to offer: Remote pile burning for fuels reduction. Join expert land stewards and gain hands-on experience learning:

  • How to create and burn safe, clean burning brush and woody debris piles
  • What precautions are needed for pile burning in a location where water is not plumbed
  • What permits are needed from air quality and fire districts
  • About the potential benefits of forest fuel reduction
  • Ecological restoration opportunities that can be associated with pile burning

Site/Terrain: In order to get to the workshop site participants will need to hike 5-10 minutes down a dirt road, with uneven footing and varied terrain. After the workshop we will need to hike 5-10 minutes uphill, on the dirt road to get back to our vehicles.

Gear: Dress for field work and being in the weather: sturdy work boots, work clothes (long pants), non-synthetic layers (cotton is great). Bring gloves, eye protection, water, a hat and sunscreen.

Lunch: Bring a bag lunch. Please bring a water bottle.

Weather: Light rain will NOT cancel the event. Participants will receive an email the day before the event if a storm will cancel.

COVID Protocols: All events will follow current regional health safety guidelines. Please practice good hand washing hygiene, and physical distancing when possible. If you do not feel well, please do not attend.
