Firewise challenges and how we are addressing them:
Marin Valley wildlands are beautiful with their gentle ruggedness, yet hazardous and vulnerable to wildfire. Maintenance of these wildland areas—tree-trimming, brush removal, selective thinning, goat grazing, and prescription-burning—are essential wildfire mitigation measures
The Marin Valley WUI is extensive, especially for the small size of the community. Ongoing maintenance of our 150’ perimeter fuel break is both a management- and labor-intensive process.
The overlapping of Home Ignition Zones is particularly challenging—requiring extensive community buy into our mitigation plan. Many homeowners have already eagerly participated in our fire mitigation plan because of our intensive Firewise education campaign.
