  • Healdsburg Golf Club at Tayman Park

Fire is the new normal for California. While there is no guaranteed way to completely avoid future fires, there are many things we can do to mitigate its impact. Come to the Healsburg Rotary Club's meeting to hear from ACR Prescribed Fire Specialist Jared Childress about science-based approaches to how we can learn to live with fire rather than suffer catastrophic losses from it.
