Sagebrush, bunchgrasses and the ever-present cheatgrass make for easy fire starting. The shrub-steppe is extremely flammable, not just in the summer, but all year round. We've pulled together some "sage" advice (sorry for the pun, but it had to be said) on how to prevent wildfires. Some are just common sense tips; others may be things you've never thought of. Before visiting us, we encourage you to "brush" up on your fire prevention.
