AHWAHNEE — The community is invited to a wildfire preparedness and prevention workday at Ahwahnee Hills Regional Park, in advance of what’s expected to be a busy fire season. The event is set for Saturday, May 4, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the park.
With representatives from local fire agencies on hand to educate the public, an opportunity for volunteers to pitch in on prepping the park for summer, and a free lunch for your trouble, it’s shaping up to be a great way to spend a day.
This year we are reaching out to our park neighbors to inform them of the five-year wildfire risk-reduction plan and grant involving the park and surrounding properties.
Please join us during Wildfire Community Preparedness Day to learn more about how to protect home and property from wildfire and meet your local firefighters.
Participants in the work day are asked to bring garden gloves and any items such as weed eaters, wheelbarrows, saws, rakes, shovels and gardening tools. Wear long pants and closed-toed shoes.
Friends of Ahwahnee Hills Regional Park will provide bottled water and snacks to all work day participants.
The 400-acre park is operated by the non-profit Friends of Ahwahnee Hills Regional Park. The park receives no tax funding and runs exclusively on donations and the volunteer efforts of the local community.
