Ways we can help
The main mission of PUC is to assist private landowners with utilizing prescribed fire as a land management goal. In addition, PUC aims to provide educational and supplementary resources for the community that are related to prescribed fire:
Community members can request a PUC coordinator to come visit the property where they reside. Coordinators can help landowners/managers come up with a management plan for their property. Fire is a beneficial tool that can be used on many landscapes in Plumas County to create defensible space, remove fuels, cycle nutrients, remove invasive species, and more. Need some direction?
