Wednesday is the final day of a three day meeting on the Sonoma State campus called Living with Fire in California’s Coast Ranges. Participants are taking part in field trips today to areas connected to the October fire storms. The first two days were packed with talks by experts from throughout California, and from other western states.

They gave presentations on the science, behavior and history of fire.  And they emphasized information that can help protect our homes and communities.

We’ll be posting some of the presentations  on our website in coming weeks. News director Steve Mencher attended one of the sessions and has this report.
