No Fire on the Farm

Dry season is here, and the risk of wildfire is ramping up. How can producers protect their farms? Clay Trauernicht, Extension specialist in wildfire science and management in the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management, is partnering with O‘ahu Cooperative Extension to offer a webinar on “Assessing and Reducing Wildfire Risk on Your Farm.”

The online webinar, offered Wednesday, June 24, from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m., will discuss planning for fire preparedness, identifying fire-related hazards on the land, and methods to manage vegetation to reduce fire risk.

After Clay’s presentation, there will be a Q&A facilitated by Josh Silva, Extension agent in edible crops. Register here, or for more information, contact Josh at jhsilva@hawaii.edu or 343-8560.
