Resilient Landscapes Stories

NPS fire managers use wildland fire and other techniques, such as mechanical cutting of heavy fuel loads and subsequent burning of slash piles, to greatly reduce the possibility of a future catastrophic fire. In some landscapes, they may hand-weed invasive or nonnative plants that change the way fire moves through an ecosystem, or allow lightning-caused wildfires to burn, thereby restoring resilience to a sensitive habitat.
