FWS Demonstration Project Educates and Protects Homeowners
San Marcos National Fish Hatchery and Technology Center - 2003
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service worked with neighbors around the San Marcos National Fish Hatchery and Technology Center to develop a demonstration project showcasing the need for and effectiveness of defensible space.
The community has experienced several large wildfires in recent years. Service personnel helped reduced overgrown, hazardous vegetation around 34 homes and each of the homeowners agreed to have the work used as a demonstration area for others interested in seeing what realistic defensible space looks like.
