Camp Meeker partners with RCD on Community Wildfire Protection Plan

It was mid-October 2018--just around the time of the first anniversary of the Tubbs Fire--when Richard Seaman surveyed his Camp Meeker community's interest in "restoring the forest and making Camp Meeker fire-safe" through a petition . From a community of 348 households, his petition received about 250 supporting signatures. Through his outreach campaign, Richard met allies who would quickly become the first members of Fire Safe Camp Meeker, a community group focused on educating, planning and implementing activities in Camp Meeker that will make the forested hill-side neighborhood more resilient to future wildfires.

Fire Safe Camp Meeker members reached out to local agencies, including Gold Ridge RCD and Fire Safe Sonoma, for funding and technical assistance. In November, the three organizations partnered with the North Coast Resource Conservation and Development Council on a funding proposal to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, also known as CAL FIRE, for the creation of a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP), and received funding in May.
