Placerville, CA, September 29th, 2014: The University of California is cohosting a workshop for the El Dorado and Amador County residents on Recovering from Wildfire: resources for private landowners. The workshop will be held at the Pleasant Valley Grange on October 24th, 9:00 to 4:00 PM. The workshop objectives are to increase understanding of the role of wildfire in forest development and change, post-fire issues and treatment options and to provide information on post-fire treatment cost-share programs, tax issues and professional assistance for post-fire treatments for private landowners. This workshop is focused on the needs of private forest landowners affected by the Sand and King Fires, but also welcomes citizens interested in the future of forests after wildfire, staff and decision makers with state, local, federal and tribal agencies concerned with forest management, defensible space, and water quality.
