OBJECTIVE: To create a defensible space for the town via the removal of hazardous fuels around Stinson Beach School and areas in the Highlands.

DESCRIPTION: Conduct hazardous fuel removal along NPS/Stinson Beach property line in two areas - the Stinson Beach School and Willow Camp Fire Road. In a wildland fire emergency, the defensible space would provide local firefighters with more time to fight the fire, and in the on-going work to create a safe environment will encourage homeowners to prepare defensible spaces for their own property.
