About

The Fall River Resource Conservation District (FRRCD) was organized in 1957 and consists of approximately 1.2 million acres in northeastern California, including parts of Shasta, Siskiyou, Lassen and Modoc Counties.

Mission

The mission of the Fall River RCD is to support private and public landowners in the use and management of natural resources that will ensure the sustained highest economic, social, and environmental benefits of these resources. This support is expressed through the coordination of public agency referrals and information, the implementation of natural resource programs, education, and the organization of land

management services.

Funding for Forest Health and Fire Resilience Achieved

 

Funding for Fire Resiliency Achieved

The Burney-Hat Creek Community Forest and Watershed Group (Collaborative) and Burney Basins Fire Safe Council (BBFSC) have identified multiple restoration opportunities on public, state, and private lands to make increase forest resilience, accelerate reforestation of severely burned forests, and reduce the risk of future catastrophic fire impacts to both communities and natural resources. Forest thinning through the diameter class and other fuel treatments (e.g. mastication, prescribed fire) would be used to reduce forest biomass and surface fuels in order to reduce the risk of catastrophic fire. This reduction would help to protect tree-based carbon stocks, improve growth rates and carbon uptake of residual trees, and minimize greenhouse gas released in the instance of wildfire. In cooperation with many partners we have achieved funding through California Climate Initiative

 to implements these vital forest health projects.
