When: April 2, 8 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Where: The Nature Conservancy Office, 23 Pueo Place, Kaunakakai
Join the broader community of Molokaʻi professionals dealing with wildfire threats and impacts for a facilitated conversation about next step hazard reduction priorities and projects.
During the action planning portion of the workshop, participants will:
Check out the results of recent efforts to map current management of hazardous vegetative fuels (thanks to all of the information that partners contributed, thus far).
Identify and discuss shared regional fuels management priorities and projects to mitigate the risks of wildfire across our island landscapes through a facilitated series of small and large group conversations. Your knowledge and priorities will contribute to planning next steps in the ongoing collaboration to manage vegetative fuels to reduce wildfire and protect both our communities and natural resources.
During the mapping portion of the workshop, participants will:
Add to the map of current and desired hazardous vegetative fuels management projects. Workshop attendee(s) should be those who are familiar with delineating the locations of vegetation management activities (fuel/firebreaks, shaded/living fuelbreaks, grazing, thinning, invasive removal, native restoration, etc.) and their associated details (type of work being done, frequency of activity, etc.).
