Promoting a conservation ethic in people of all ages is central to our mission of Conservation in Action. Please join us on the preserves to explore seasonal changes, take part in naturalist training or dig in with other volunteers to assist our land management team. Reservations are required for most events in order to ensure that human impact is kept in balance with land and habitat preservation goals.

CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) for CAL FIRE Funded Projects

Audubon Canyon Ranch Event Calendar


CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) for CAL FIRE Funded Projects

Sep 5 2019 - 10:00am to 3:00pm
Bouverie Preserve

ACR's Fire Forward, the Bay Area Prescribed Fire Council and CAL FIRE present: CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act): A how-to for projects funded by CAL FIRE

Taught by Christopher E. Browder, CAL FIRE Deputy Chief for Environmental Protection

Learn how to apply for and manage CAL FIRE grants (VMP, CFIP, Forest Health):

  • This class will focus on CEQA processes related to CAL FIRE grant funding and private/public agencies’ legal obligations. It will cover CEQA’s purpose, why it applies, basics (authority, summary, key terms, process), lead & responsible agencies, Senate Bill 901, exempt projects, environmental documents, document adequacy and archaeology. While not ideal for complete new-comers to CEQA, it may be appropriate for some. There will be a lot of detail shared and plenty of time for discussion.

Cost: $10, includes lunch (no one turned away for lack of funds)
