Fuels Management Training Homepage
Swanton Pacific Ranch's Fuels Management Training Program educates current and career-transition professionals and veterans in wildfire fuel mitigation measures and ecological restoration with the long-term goal of increasing the pace and scale of vegetation management to build a more sustainable and fire resilient landscape for every Californian.
Funded by a CALFIRE Healthy Forest Initiative Grant and kicking off in March 2022, the Fuels Management Training Program offers free twice monthly webinars, monthly field-based workshops in every corner of California, and biannual full day symposia for the life of the grant (through February, 2025).
