What do we know about the potential for fire in our landscapes?

How can we rethink our design and maintenance practices to reduce the hazard of fires and minimize damage in our communities? ReScape California invites you to be part of the firescaping conversation and to improve fire safety strategies in your area.

Join us for this one-day workshop and explore the characteristics of fire, how this knowledge can aid the evaluation of a site, and how the application of Bay-Friendly principles can be used holistically to work against the severity of fires.

  • Designing against fire – designing for escape and to reduce risks and conflicts
