UC Master Gardeners Hedwig Van Den Broeck and Steve Danziger will talk about Firewise Landscaping.

Although wildfires have beneficial impacts on ecological resources, they also have been catastrophic for many fire prone communities in California. Our increasing urban developmewnt in or near undeveloped wildland and extreme weather conditions have made recent years the most devastating fire years in the state's recorded history. The threat to life and property is real and worthwhile to get prepared for. Join us to learn strategies on how you can reduce your risks in fire prone California by protecting and hardening your home and creating beautiful forewise landscapes in conjuntion with careful selection placement and mantenance of plants in your garden.

Ask a Master Gardener table will be at this event, as well. Bring your gardening questions for our experts from 9 AM to 12 PM.
