Fuels Measure Class

Santa Fe Youthworks crew were in the Cibola National Forest measuring fuels loading on the Sulphur Canyon project with Krista Bonfantine of Arid Lands Innovation LLC.  Building on what they learned in their S130/190 class about fuel size classes, Krista explained the why and how of measuring fuels, how it is used by prescribed fire practitioners and fire modeling.

The crew then laid out transects and measured 1-hour, 10-hour, 100-hour and 1000-hour fuels, inputting them into the ForestMeasure app. 

This coming weekend, the community abutting Sulpher Canyon will be gathering fuelwood on the ground from this project with the help of the crew.  They will then come back and re-measure the fuels to see the difference in loads. 

Our Mission

Wildfire Network works in pursuit of community wildfire resiliency by working with young adults and communities to promote firefighter safety, job development and youth mentorship. Through wildland fire and land management training, we employ and mentor at-risk youth in forest health, wildfire mitigation and safe firefighting techniques. We educate K-12 youth about natural fire processes within their environment and provide aid to communities with wildfire risk reduction and property stewardship.

Wildfire Network believes the cornerstone of community wildfire resiliency is education in adaptive management techniques on and around private property.
