In Southern Oregon, high temperatures, drought, and wildfire are major players in land management. For many residents, this summer has been especially trying. Wildfire on your property can alter the way water moves on your property, how wildlife use your property (including insects, rodents, and birds), and your property's resilience to other disturbances (future fires, heavy rain events, wind erosion).
