Prescribed Burning for Wildfire Prevention and Regeneration
As the Bay Area has grown more populated, burning has been restricted. To carefully explore how best to recapture these benefits, TomKat Ranch is launching a collaboration with CalFIRE and Point Blue Conservation Science to create a dynamic fire management plan on the ranch and look into the feasibility and safety of bringing prescribed burning back to our land as it has been practiced by indigenous people for hundreds, perhaps thousands of years. It is our hope that in addition to expanding the regenerative toolbox at TomKat Ranch, this project can also provide a rigorous and effective framework for others to do the same.
