Ashland Fire Resiliency Experiment Turns Ten

AFR

The goal at the beginning was simple: prevent wildfire from roaring through the city of Ashland's watershed, protecting the city and its water supply from a high-intensity fire.

Ten years later, the work continues on the Ashland Forest Resiliency Stewardship Project, generally called by people who know it just "AFR." The project area in the hills above the city was left untouched by the September fires, but there have been some hard lessons learned in activities like the igniting of controlled burns.

Project participants join us for a look back at accomplishments and a look ahead to what remains.
