Fighting fire with fire: Prescribed fire training returns to the Central Cascades this month. Firefighters and managers from nine organizations will learn how to apply prescribed burns safely to better manage our forests for health and resilience.
We are celebrating a milestone in a long-term project to protect and restore the forests along I 90 as the U.S. Forest Service prepares to acquire 4,814 acres of the Central Cascades forest with the support of the Land and Water Conservation Fund
Each of us can support the health of the trees in our region – whether it is caring for the tree in your yard, talking about the value of trees with your neighbors and others, or volunteering with a local organization to plant trees in restoration sites and local green spaces.

Fuel from multiple handheld drip torches ignited invasive grasses and fire spread quickly across a former farm field Wednesday, as fire professionals from many agencies worked together to conduct a controlled burn at the McNary National Wildlife Refuge in Burbank, near the Tri-Cities in south-central Washington. The exercise was part of the 2019 Cascadia Fall TREX, or Prescribed Fire Training Exchange, held Sept. 29-Oct. 11.
