Preparing for Wildfires with Firescaping is a project designed to increase Southeastern U.S. wildfire preparedness by educating community members and Cooperative Extension Agents about fire-resistant landscaping, or firescaping. Through several presentations and activities, the training will teach participants about Southeastern U.S. wildland fire history, fire behavior, home ignition, plant flammability, firescaping design and maintenance, home wildfire risk assessment, combining firescaping with other landscape objectives, recommendations for sharing firescaping with the broader community, and more. Master Gardeners and other community members can take the training (1) online over several weeks or (2) as a one day in-person training. Note that participants must work with an Extension Agent, other educator, or the firescaping project manager to take either training.  In addition, there is a separate (3) online training preparing Extension educators to deliver or facilitate the training by increasing their firescaping knowledge.  For more information, please contact the Project Manager, Holly Campbell, at hollycam@uga.edu, or visit: https://www.warnelloutreach.org/fire
