Hopland Research & Extension Center, Post Fire

Aug 15, 2018

Aug 15, 2018 -- The Hopland Research and Extension Center was evacuated during the River Fire, and about two thirds of it burned. Buildings, livestock, and guard dogs were all spared. But what effect did the fire have on wildlife? I took a walk around some of the upper pastures with HREC comunity educator Hannah Bird. She told me she expects the center to shift its focus to wildfire ecology. The center, she believes, is ideally suited for it, because scientists kept years of data leading up to the fires.

And a lot of the customers who used to hire him to do work on their land are burned out, too. When we drove out to the parcel where he lived less than a year ago, we saw signs for three different realtors at the end of the road.
