Forestry and Wildfire Panel – Ferndale
February 23 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFREE
Join several of DNR’s local Foresters who explain what they do locally in Whatcom County and how their work fits into the bigger picture of Forest Management throughout the State of Washington. Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) protects our state’s heritage of natural resources by sustainably managing millions of acres of state lands in forests, under the sea and across agricultural plains. DNR also protects forestlands and communities against wildfire using wildland firefighting crews and aviation resources, collaborative forest health efforts and community preparedness assistance, manages the state’s most precious natural areas , administers state forest practices rules and monitors geologic hazards and regulates the reclamation of surface mines.
