The San Mateo Resource Conservation District has partnered with the Resource Conservation District of Santa Cruz County and the Natural Resources Conservation Service to host a webinar series titled “Protecting your Land After a Wildfire.” 

This FREE online series will provide residents with an understanding of the short and long-term effects of wildfire on the landscape and best practices for aiding the recovery process. We have brought together professionals in erosion and sediments control, post-fire recovery, civil engineering, hydrology, water quality and fisheries. We expect to add several more topics in the coming weeks. Please find the attached webinar flyer or see the information below with a link to each presentation. REGISTION IS REQUIRED.
