Los Padres Fuel Reduction Project Leader
SCA
Posted 6/21/18 
Program Dates: September 16 - December 1, 2018 
Wildfires have been a persistent threat to residents of southern California, with every year being more challenging than the previous.  The 2017 Thomas Fire burned over 280,000 acres and destroyed over 1,000 structures, making it the largest wildfire in California history proved that very problem true.  To help deal with the increasing danger of wildfires, SCA has been partnering with the Los Padres National Forest on their fuels mitigation program to help reduce the amount of overgrowth of vegetation on the forest.  This overgrowth is a major contributing factor to increasing intensity of wildfires over the years.  This fuels reduction project not only will help reduce the risk of wildfires in the area, but also help restore the forest to a more natural state, one where wildfires can help sustain the health of the forest rather than destroy it. The Los Padres National Forest Fuels Reduction Team will consist of four members and one Project Leader.  The Team will work primarily on fuels reduction work, by chainsaw or other means, and could also work on other projects as assigned.  Participants should be ready for steep terrain and to carry heavy packs.  The weather will vary from hot and dry to cool and wet.  Poison Oak will also be present in work areas.
