Lomakatsi Prescribed Fire Program
For the past 12 years Lomakatsi has been implementing controlled burns as a tool to reduce the unnatural accumulations of fuels and reintroduce fire as an important ecological agent for achieving ecological restoration objectives.
Lomakatsi has recently expanded our prescribed fire program working in partnership with the US Forest Service, the US Fish and Wildlife Service and private landowners. We have been successful in procuring federal dollars to implement prescribed fire projects as part of our forest restoration efforts.
Lomakatsi prescribed fire program has been established to accomplish the following objectives:
1) Educate the public about prescribed fire use in ecological restoration and fuels reduction
2) Work to procure funding and develop prescribed burning projects working with agency partners and private landowners
3) Organize and orchestrate training programs in prescribed fire for restoration practitioners
4) Implement ecological prescribed fire projects on private and federal lands
