Since the CAL FIRE complete Burn Ban in Santa Cruz County was lifted on November 20, and the Monterey Bay Air Resource District’s Backyard Burn Period begins December 1, we will have a Backyard Burn Workshop, Saturday, January 13, 10am-Noon at 150 McGivern Way, Bonny Doon. We will discuss the newest MBARD Backyard Burn permits & regulations (which, for our area, are now more relaxed than in the past), Safety, and Smoke Control. Most importantly, we will demonstrate current best practices for pile burning, learned from our experiences burning over 300 piles in fuel breaks in the 6 years since our first Workshop.
