Ever wonder what those four-legged herbivores are doing in your neighborhood, along your favorite walking trail, or dotting the hillsides on your daily commute? As wildfires in California have increased in frequency and intensity, prescribed or planned grazing of sheep, goats, and other ruminant animals is being utilized to manage the overgrowth of fine, dry brush that adds fuel to these fires – and their climate impacts. Join the Community Environmental Council’s webinar to learn about new legislation recently introduced by Senator Monique Limón that will enhance wildfire mitigation efforts by expanding statewide prescribed grazing efforts. Hear from local rangeland contractors, conservationists, and policymakers about the need to scale this important ecological and fire resilience tool – and how Senate Bill 675 will ensure that prescribed grazing is better integrated into existing statewide wildfire resilience programs and strategies. Spanish interpretation will be available at the event. Register: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/6916783096815/WN_N-z7kUkASN-Bd-lcBjifPw
