A multi-party project is underway to study wildfire issues in the Sierra Nevada. Issues related to wildfire prevention and forest vegetation treatments—risks, ecosystem health, water quality & quantity, wildlife (spotted owl & fisher), and more—are included in “SNAMP” (Sierra Nevada Adaptive Management Project). The project is a joint effort between state and federal agencies with the University of California serving as the neutral third party. Learn about SNAMP, how to participate, and where the vegetation treatment study areas are being planned in this area, attend the Sierra Club’s general meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct 26, at the Auburn Library, 350 Nevada St., Auburn. The meeting is free and open to the public. For more information, call 652-7005.
