This summer's hot dry weather and the Waldo Canyon Fire have left most residents with a feeling of concern about the flammability of their landscape and property. Colorado State University Extension will be presenting research-based fire mitigation practices, including:
- How to reduce your risk of loss in the event of a forest fire
- What you need to do to rejuvenate your fire-damaged landscape
- The meaning of "wild land-urban interface"
Pre-registration is requested, but not required.
To register, or for more information, call 719-520-7688
