Wildfire Network is partnering with Santa Fe Youthworks, a non-profit that creates opportunities for disconnected youth and families in Northern New Mexico to become engaged and valued members of their communities, Ecotone, an ecological assessment, planning, monitoring, and education service, and Arid Lands Innovation LLC,  to provide hands-on training on projects in wildfire mitigation and land management.

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.
